The National Institutes of Health awarded UC Davis Health System $24.8 million to establish a Clinical and Translational Science Center. The center becomes the new academic home for innovative and collaborative medical research at UC Davis and its many institutional and community partners.

UC Davis is among the first 12 institutions in the United States and one of only three in the West to launch the NIH Clinical and Translational Science initiative, which aims to transform clinical research to improve human health. Working in partnership with the NIH and the other centers, UC Davis serves as a discovery engine that will improve medical care by applying new scientific advances to real-world practice. The goal is to ensure that new approaches to care reach health-care providers, underserved populations, local community organizations and other people who need treatment.
