Center for Clinical and Translational Science

The University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) is a vibrant enterprise capable of translating scientific discoveries into clinical applications and on to
Massachusetts communities.

UMass Amherst researchers who have a demonstrated research interest in clinical and/or translational research programs are encouraged to apply for UMCCTS membership.  Applications involve a simple on-line form and a copy of your 4-page NIH Biosketch, including a list of recent publications.

There are many benefits to membership, including: 1) eligibility to apply for internal pilot grants through the Center and the University; 2) access to core facilities and services operated by the Center at the on-campus faculty rate; and 3) the opportunity to participate in education, training, and scientific programs sponsored by the Center.  Efforts are underway to provide on-line access to the medical school library. Members are expected to contribute to the Center as potential mentors or instructors, and to serve on scientific review panels.

This is a wonderful opportunity to better integrate campus research activities with those of the medical school in the pursuit of translational science. 

For more information about this opportunity, please contact Professor Larry Schwartz.  Questions about the status of UMCCTS applications can be directed to Loren Walker in the Office of Research Development.
