Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research

Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research

The Mississippi Center for Clinical and Translational Research is an ambitious enterprise designed to promote the success of obesity focused research at three CCTR partner institutions - the University of Mississippi Medical CenterTougaloo College, and the University of Southern Mississippi. Our mission is to develop a powerful and sustainable research enterprise that will have an important public health impact by reducing obesity and its complications as well as health disparities in Mississippi.

The center is funded by an Institutional Development Award Program Infrastructure for Clinical and Translational Research grant through the National Institute of General Medicine Sciences. This $19.8 million grant seeks to improve the health of Mississippians by providing the infrastructure needed to support obesity-related research across this multi-institutional venture.
