CTSI RESEARCH SERVICES
The CTSI Service Center
The CTSI Service Center provides a range of services and resources to investigators performing translational research across campus.The CTSI Service Center’s programs, resources and core facilities can assist you in:
Initial consultations for all services are offered at no cost. If a study requires special or extended involvement of staff, cost may be assessed. We will discuss all available options at the first consultation.
Please contact any of the CTSI services listed below as early in the process as possible, even before you have submitted a grant proposal.
