The UR CTSI will be a replicable, scalable, and sustainable model environment for research across the translational spectrum, from molecules to populations, responsive to community priorities, conducted by transdisciplinary, patient and community-engaged teams, that improves population health.
The UR CTSI promotes research that is reproducible, community-engaged and compliant with rules and regulations.
The UR CTSI strives to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
The UR CTSI manifests its compassion through our goal of improving population health and reducing health disparities in our communities.
The UR CTSI is accountable to the University and funding agencies as well as local and global communities for whom we provide research and education programs. We are committed to developing metrics of accountability consistent with these values.
The UR CTSI respects the differing values of the communities we serve: students, researchers, patients and community members. We are committed to the value of team science, which includes fostering a culture of transdisciplinary respect and active engagement with scientists of every background and perspective.
The UR CTSI strives to be a national model for excellence in translational science and research education programs. We are dedicated to training and supporting researchers to enable them to achieve the highest quality of work in their fields and are committed to excellence in translational research at a national level, balancing efficiency, integrity and timeliness.
The UR CTSI was one of the first 12 institutions in the nation funded by the Clinical and Translational Science Award Program, which aims to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries to health improvements. Since its inception in 2006, the UR CTSI has invested over $20 million in research funding and trainee support at the University of Rochester – and we’ve seen excellent return on that investment. In total, our trainees and grant recipients have gone on to obtain nearly $120 million in extramural funding.
