Welcome to the RI-CCTS

The Rhode Island Center for Clinical and Translational Science (RI-CCTS) serves as a virtual home to support and educate clinical and translational researchers in Rhode Island. Our goal is to enhance collaboration and coordination of translational research in order to accelerate cross-disciplinary discoveries that improve health. The RI-CCTS aims to:

  • Foster coordination between translational researchers at our partner institutions.
  • Bring together the diverse clinical research resources to provide a home that facilitates new collaborations.
  • Eliminate obstacles that may prevent researchers from pursuing clinical research initiatives.
  • Educate, mentor and encourage young investigators in clinical research professional development.
  • Facilitate research to gather preliminary data necessary for developing competitive research proposals.
  • Sustain a clinical translational research environment by providing the necessary management and coordination of resources.
