About Miami CTSI

Created in 2012, the Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) drives research translation into evidence-based clinical and community practices that improve the health of South Florida’s diverse population.

In a community comprised of 85 percent racial and ethnic minorities, the Miami CTSImakes significant contributions in minority health and health disparities and in training underrepresented minorities in clinical, translational, and community-engaged research.

The Miami CTSI educates, connects, and supports research teams by building the distinct science of clinical translational research, fostering collaboration, and managing the resources needed to sustain success in these areas.

Made up of the University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Health System, and Miami VA Healthcare System, we are jointly funded by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities. The Miami CTSI is member of the National Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Consortium, a prestigious group of 60 world-class academic research institutions that is transforming the way biomedical research is conducted across the country.

The CTSA’s goal is to increase the efficiency and speed of moving scientific discoveries into treatments and interventions for better health.
