Uw ictr s mission

UW ICTR’s Mission

  • To create an environment that transforms research into a continuum from investigation through discovery and to translation into real-life community practice

    • “In the field of medicine, for example, it is used totranslate the findings in basic research more quickly and efficiently into medical practice and, thus, meaningful health outcomes, whether those are physical, mental, or social outcomes. “

    • Thereby linking even the most basic research to practical improvements in human health

    • Change the UW culture from “silos” to cooperation and collaboration among ICTR members
