Organization and Administration

In 2006, three Texas Medical Center institutions were among the first in the nation to receive a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health to accelerate the translation of laboratory discoveries into patient treatments. The grant was used to establish the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS). Headquartered at UTHealth Houston, the CCTS includes the following partner organizations and campuses:

UTHealth Houston
The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
The University of Texas at Tyler Health Science Center
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
Rice University
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso
Memorial Hermann Hospital System
Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital System

CCTS resources are available to all faculty, staff, and trainees at each of the above institutions. See About Us for how to access the resources and our component web pages for more information.
