The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is a multi-disciplinary scientific community linking basic, clinical and translational investigators to collaborate on research across the translational research spectrum. CCTS provides an environment for translational research to flourish by providing research training, education, guidance and mentorship to new translational investigators as well as research support and services such as informatics, team science, data science support, and research navigation services.
CCTS is the home of MaineHealth REDCap, and the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) research data warehouse. The Northern New England Clinical & Translational Research Network (NNE-CTR) grant, led by Cliff Rosen, MD and Gary Stein, MD and other translational research collaborations such as the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) and Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER) also reside in the CCTS.
