About us

The Ohio State University Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is a collaboration among The Ohio State University, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children's Hospital dedicated to turning the scientific discoveries of today into life-changing disease prevention strategies and the health diagnostics and treatments of tomorrow.

Funded by a multi-year Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health, the CCTS leverages expertise from every college across the University, including scientists and clinicians from the seven Health Science Colleges, the College of Engineering, OSU Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, community health and education agencies, business partnerships, and regional institutional network partnerships.

The CCTS provides financial, organizational, and educational support to biomedical researchers, as well as opportunities for community members to participate in credible and valuable research.
