The overall mission of the University of Florida Clinical and Translational Science Institute (UF CTSI) is to improve human health by accelerating the translation of scientific discoveries into practical applications and practices for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure of human diseases. It is geared to attract individual and team investigators to amplify their capabilities, and to help them more effectively and more quickly carry out their clinical and translational research. UF CTSI improvements include awarding of funding for pilot projects, changing the IRB submission process, creating new informatics resources, and introducing a common reimbursement price list for clinical research charges.


The UF CTSI has been awarded two multi-year NIH Clinical and Translational Science Awards totaling more than $42 million and receives significant institutional support. We partner with the UF Health system, the North Florida/ South Georgia Veterans Health System, partners across the state including Florida State University and the University of Miami and their affiliated health systems and practices, and other CTSAs across the country. The CTSI supports 13 transformative programs, 45 services to investigators, and 12 educational programs spanning the translational spectrum.
