Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) - RCR Training Resources

The CCTS is funded by a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Center for Advancing Transactional Sciences, National Institutes of Health, and grant UL1TR003096. It is one of 62 CTSA programs nationwide and the only CTSA in Alabama. Established in 2008, the CCTS Partner Network, which spans 11 academic research institutions in three Deep South states (AL, MS, LA), is the foundation of the collaborative efforts.

Auburn University is a partner within the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) Network which provides a variety of Responsible Conduct of Research training resources.  Visit the links below for additional information.
