Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research

The Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research is an ambitious enterprise designed to promote the success of research focusing on all major diseases that impact Mississippians at our five CCTR partner institutions - the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, Tougaloo College and the University of Southern Mississippi. Our mission is to develop a powerful and sustainable research enterprise that will have an important public health impact by reducing obesity and cardiometabolic-related diseases in Mississippi.

The center is funded by an Institutional Development Award Program Infrastructure for Clinical and Translational Research grant through the National Institute of General Medicine Sciences. This $19.8 million grant seeks to improve the health of Mississippians by providing the infrastructure needed to support research projects across this multi-institutional venture.
