What is Translational Science?

Coronavirus Research Response

Since our founding in 2006, the UR CTSI has been cultivating a robust research ecosystem that accelerates the translation of discoveries to therapies and interventions that improve the health of individuals and populations. Never has that mission been so important. In the past year, the UR CTSI took up the reins to help steer our University's rapid research response to this unprecedented pandemic. Our team has built research data tools like the COVID-19 Biobank to help researchers study this novel disease. We have engaged our community and kept them informed and safe. And we have established and supported teams of researchers who are pursuing innovative ways to treat and prevent COVID-19.
