Director of Research Partnerships
July 17, 2009
The Institute is a partnership between the University of Washington, Seattle Children’s, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and other local/regional institutions dedicated to improving human health.
Helps researchers obtain the education, resources and collaborations necessary to translate discoveries into practice.ITHS Overview
The ITHS mission is to create, enable, and sustain innovative translational research and collaborations across disciplines and professions which will accelerate the development of concepts and tangible products that will improve human health.
Our common purpose is to:
Translational research involves moving knowledge and discovery gained from the basic sciences to its application in clinical and community settings. This concept is often summarized by the phrases "bench-to-bedside" and "bedside-to-community" research.
Translational research has been described in phases of translation, or "T-phases."
The ITHS has adopted a model of 5 phases (T0-T4).
