    The CCTS vision is to reduce the burden of disease and disparities in health outcomes that disproportionately affect the underserved minority and special (i.e., socioeconomically disadvantaged, rural) populations within our region. This vision forms a common purpose among the institutions in our CCTS Partner Network. Working together, we will enhance the translation of fundamental and clinical research into improvements for human health and health care delivery. By further developing a diverse, well-trained workforce in translational science, by promoting an efficient scientific infrastructure, by engaging our communities in partnership to identify challenges and create approaches to solutions, and by assuring effective use of available resources, the CCTS Partner Network will accelerate the pace of discovery to delivery across the translational spectrum.
