    Collapse overview

    The University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science (UMCCTS) is based at the UMass Medical School in Worcester and is part of the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium.  The goals of our center are to 1) accelerate clinical and translational research in order to improve the health of patients and communities, and 2) educate the next generation of clinical and translational researchers.


     


    I coordinate overall activities and assist in the implementation of sponsored programs associated with the UMCCTS.  In this role I serve as the UMCCTS Research Navigator, acting as a liaison to extramural resources (industry, NIH, other CTSAs), linking investigators to one another and to research resources, aiding in the development of projects, and maintaining a working knowledge of all UMCCTS services, operations, and personnel.  In addition I direct all UMCCTS pilot funding programs and our local I-Corps program.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
