troke, said Maureen Goode, Ph.D., the administrative director of the CCTS.

CCTS-supported research also helped establish that delivering intensive care to extremely premature infants should not be solely based on the infant's gestational age and that phototherapy reduces impairment in extremely low birth weight babies.

Since it was established, the CCTS has helped researchers produce more than 2,500 research publications and is working with residents of the Houston area and Brownsville to address health issues. The CCTS community engagement component is working to accelerate the adoption of programs with evidence of effectiveness and to conduct research on obesity-reduction strategies that can be disseminated broadly. "Our team will work closely with the community and fellow researchers in a participatory approach to build capacity for the translation of science into practice settings such as community clinics and nonprofit organizations" said Belinda Reininger, Dr.PH, co-leader of the CCTS community engagement component and associate professor at The University of Texas School of Public Health Brownsville Regional Campus, a part of UTHealth. "The focus of the CCTS community engagement component is to work with underserved populations."

The CCTS is collaborating with the other three UT System institutions that have CTSA awards and has formed the Texas Regional CTSA Consortium, which includes the translational medicine programs at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. The UTHealth-based CCTS is providing research services to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center -El Paso, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler and Baylor College of Medicine as well.

"The CCTS provides a terrific platform for scientists from many disciplines to work together and create powerful synergies
