“CTSI is committed to fostering a truly diverse and equitable environment. As an organization, we seek to improve the health and health equity of our community here in North Carolina and across the nation. Through collaborative research, CTSI catalyzes innovation and accelerates translation of scientific discoveries into health benefits for communities. We provide essential services and resources to move ideas from the laboratory through early-phase clinical trials, and to educate current and future translational medicine researchers.”
