rage collaboration among institutions to translate our understanding of disease at the level of molecules and cells to improve the lives of our patients."

Divided into 12 components that support different aspects of the discovery process, the CCTS supports innovative clinical and translational projects proposed by faculty and students at UTHealth, MD Anderson Cancer Center and other institutions. CCTS also supports work at other UTHealth research centers, including one dedicated to improving the care of people with injuries.

"The research and breakthroughs made by the CCTS have made significant improvements and positive impacts on patient care in our hospital and clinics," said Craig Cordola, chief executive officer of Memorial Hermann-TMC. "We are very grateful for the renewal of this grant and look forward to the continued progress from this collaboration."

The CCTS supports young investigators and students by providing salary and mentors who assist them with research. The center provides the statistical support necessary to manage and analyze complex multi-variable projects.

The training of graduate students in translational research is conducted in part by The University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, which is operated by UTHealth and MD Anderson Cancer Center. "The students get to conduct research in the laboratories of scientists at both institutions," said UTHealth Biochemistry Department Vice Chair Michael Blackburn, Ph.D., who along with Michelle Barton, Ph.D., a professor of biochemistry at MD Anderson Cancer Center, is jointly serving as dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

The CCTS facilitates research at three Clinical Research Units (CRUs). Staffed by experienced research nurses and phlebotomists, the CRUs provide dedicated space and equipment for clinical research. The CRUs are located at Memorial Hermann-TMC, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Valley Baptist Medical Center in
