Message from the Director: Clifford J. Rosen, M.D.
The clinical and translational research community at MMCRI is a closely-linked, multi-disciplinary scientific enterprise in which basic, clinical and translational investigators plan and conduct studies as collaborators and scientific colleagues. With the tripod of research, education and patient care as the center of our endeavor, forging the interdisciplinary divide between clinical, translational, and basic research.
We provide the opportunity and environment for translational research to flourish through mentoring from established investigators to junior scientists. We have established core facilities to enhance and facilitate translational research being performed by an assembled group of basic and clinical scientists at MMCRI.
The Center for Clinical and Translational Research (CCTR) is comprised of the Musculoskeletal basic science laboratory and the Clinical and Translational Research Laboratory Services
Within the CCTR, a talented group of collaborative scientists under the leadership of Dr. Clifford Rosen address questions that are at the cutting edge of translating basic discovery into improved clinical patient outcomes. The CCTR mission is:
1) To tackle the major chronic diseases that are the centerpiece of Maine Medical Center's signature clinical and clinical research programs
2) To build and support a centralized research infrastructure, and
3) To build and strengthen ties with the basic science research being performed at MMCRI.
