About Us

Advance RI-CTR is a statewide hub of research resources and services for clinical and translational investigators in Rhode Island.

We are funded by an Institutional Development Award Networks for Clinical and Translational Research (IDeA-CTR) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (U54GM115677) for the state of Rhode Island.

Our Mission

Specific Aims:

  1. To support the enhancement of infrastructure and human resources required to address clinical and translational research needs in Rhode Island.
  2. To strengthen clinical and translational research that addresses the broad spectrum of health challenges faced by populations in Rhode Island.
  3. To foster and coordinate collaboration in clinical and translational research across our partner institutions in Rhode Island and with other institutions in the IDeA-CTR network.

We're working to change what research looks like in our state. Since launching Advance RI-CTR in 2016, we've made significant progress toward fueling collaborations, funding high-impact, community-driven projects, and helping junior investigators get the support they need to launch independent research careers.
