Research initiatives at UNE
The Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) Initiative
The University is known to recruit, retain, promote, and tenure health sciences faculty whose teaching and service is informed and refreshed by the sponsored (extramural) pre-clinical, clinical, and translational science research they conduct. The mission of the CTS Initiative is to support and promote the clinical and translational science research capacity of University of New England faculty.
