Institute for Translational Health Sciences


The Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) supports translational research that improves human health by leading to discoveries that will eliminate human disease.

Our research covers every phase of translation: from idea formation; to the first testing of the idea in a cell, animal, or person; to large scale clinical trials; to moving a proven idea into health practices, and encouraging its adoption as a standard approach.

We are collaboratory--fostering links among researchers, within communities, and between researchers and our communities. To make significant advances in eradicating disease, we must work as an integrated team on shared problems. Together we will improve human health.
