Clinical and Translational Sciences

The Division of Clinical and Translational Sciences (DCTS) within the Department of Internal Medicine (IM) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) serves as the primary academic home for faculty in the Biostatistics/Epidemiology/Research Design (BERD), a core component of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). CCTS was established in 2006 by one of the first 12 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Awards (CTSA), which were designed to transform clinical research at academic institutions.
