The West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute was created by its member institutions to advance the development of research focused on the health issues facing the people and communities of West Virginia -- specifically cancer, cardiovascular disease and stroke, along with obesity-related diseases.

We believe communities benefit most from research when they have the opportunity to help set the research agenda. We also believe institutions are stronger when they collaborate and cooperate with others that share their values. And we believe the development of scientific capability across our entire state will benefit not only the health of West Virginians, but also our educational and economic future.

After exploring the many content areas of the WVCTSI, please contact us for more information on how to get involved and/or provide suggestions on how best to serve you and West Virginia.
