“In 2007, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (DAB) and its affiliates completed three important, large- scale strategic planning efforts. Together, these processes generated a ‘blueprint for our research future’ that lays the foundation to transform our substantial clinical and translational research enterprise through integration and innovation across all disciplines, schools, and our health care system,” says the University of Alabama’s abstract for its Center for Clinical and Translational Science on the NIH RePORTER. The Center for Clinical and Translational Science received a $5.1 million award last year.
The application for funding was submitted by Dr. Robert Kimberly, whose specialty is general rheumatology, according to the U.S. News and World Report. The University of Alabama website states that the school is a $500 million research enterprise where collaboration is key. The University of Alabama’s research focuses on topics such as neuroscience, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. The Center for Clinical and Translational Science abstract on the NIH RePORTER continues in describing the center’s vision and goals:
“The CCTS vision is to transform the DAB environment by building productive and efficient interdisciplinary research teams through educational ingenuity, regulatory reorganization, resource coordination, and methodological innovation. The mission is to develop a transformative infrastructure that spans the spectrum from preclinical research to bench-to-bedside translation (T1 research) to community implementation (T2 research), and will meet 5 goals: 1) transform the Investigator; 2) transform the Training Environment; 3) transform the Resource Infrastructure; 4) transform the Approach to Interdisciplinary Research via an emphasis on outcomes research and health disparities research; and 5) establish a new Research Model through the Self-Monitoring and Improvement Program.”
