The Tennessee Clinical and Translational Science Institute (TN-CTSI) was established to be a statewide entity to build on a solid record of institutional change and to further accelerate and expand efforts to overcome bottlenecks to the conduct of high-quality rigorous clinical and translational research (CTR). The TN-CTSI integrates various components at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) and drives innovation in CTR by accelerating workforce development and community engagement, and by promoting team science aimed at improving health outcomes and eliminating health disparities across the entire lifespan in Tennessee – particularly  in the state’s rural areas and underserved populations.



Catalyze the development of methods and technologies that lead to more efficient translation of scientific discoveries into interventions that improve human health across the translational research spectrum, from basic science to population science.


Trains faculty, staff, and students in interdisciplinary team science, clinical trials, informatics, regulatory science, and population science.


Fosters the development of collaborative interdisciplinary teams by providing research support infrastructure while constantly tracking metrics to improve quality, safety, and efficiency in clinical and translational research.
