Research means hope to the thousands of patients who have benefited from our discoveries right here at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.

UNM Clinical and Translational Science Center

As a member of the national NIH CTSA Consortium, we are committed to bettering health by streamlining science, transforming training environments, and improving the conduct, quality, and dissemination of research from laboratories to clinical practice, and out into communities. This prestigious designation ensures New Mexico remains a leader in the biomedical research field. It also fuels our culture of scientific discovery and its impacts on health.

With a team of more than 300 investigators and support professionals, the CTSC is working to advance research. We form new teams and partnerships, develop new tools, technologies, best practices, and provide investigators with opportunities for pilot funding and career development.

Our CTSC program offers a multitude of assets and resources. We maintain a wide range of services openly available to investigators and research teams, such as a sophisticated clinical research unit, investigator training programs, biomedical informatics tools, genomic technologies, a large scale drug discovery program, a clinical research data warehouse, and commercialization facilitation. This infrastructure enables scientific discover to move more rapidly toward enhancing human health.

Call 505-272-HOPE to participate in a CTSC study today. Be a part of the cure. Research means hope.
