Research on Campus
The CU Anschutz Medical Campus is a nationally recognized leader in the discovery and innovative approaches to improving human health. With research awards and gifts totaling more than $450 million annually, CU Anschutz researchers collaborate with partner
and affiliate hospitals, clinics and centers to bring research from the bench to the patient’s bedside. Discoveries on the Anschutz Medical Campus have led to new medical devices, pharmaceuticals, diagnostic methods, treatment of debilitating
conditions and improved quality of life for patients and consumers worldwide. Since 2002, CU Anschutz technology has led to the filing of 2,000 patent applications and the formation of 60 new companies, funded by more than $914 million in venture
capital and public and private equity investment and grants.
The Colorado Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute
The CCTSI is the academic home to help transform the clinical and translational research and
training efforts at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and affiliated institutions. The CCTSI was created in 2008 with funding from the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) initiative of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH) and is host to a wide range of Programs and Services supporting research and research training and mentoring, as well as a substantial portfolio of funding opportunities available to trainee and junior investigators.
is a School of Medicine funded program to develop research infrastructure and provide experimental models for the preclinical testing of new candidate therapeutics, reliable immunotherapeutic production, consistent clinical trials research support,
and organized immune monitoring capabilities. The HI3 supports recruitment and training of future scientific leaders within the realm of basic immunology and immunotherapy. The ultimate goal of the HI3 is to establish preeminence in human immune system-targeted
therapies on the CU Anschutz medical campus.
The Adult and Child Consortium for Health Outcomes Research and Delivery Science (ACCORDS)
focuses on the spectrum of outcomes research, encompassing comparative effectiveness, patient-centered outcomes and implementation and dissemination research to guide clinical practice and policy. ACCORDS is organized into five programmatic areas:
Dissemination and Implementation Science, Education, Research Training & Mentorship, Practice Transformation, and Community Engagement and Outreach, and also has methodologic cores in Qualitative Methods, Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRNs),
Biostatistics, Patient-Centered Decisions and Mobile Health (mHealth) & Informatics. These cores provide support to the programmatic areas, as well as consultative support to investigators. A major focus of the methodological cores
is to provide support for the development of new projects and grant proposals.
Master’s in Public Health
Fellows have the opportunity to pursue a Master’s in Public Health through the University of Colorado Denver. Tuition is not a standard component of fellowship support, but there are a number of support options available through training programs
and grants. Many the core public health courses can be taken online, though some courses will require in-person attendance for day or on occasion evening courses. Students have up to 5 years to complete the program.
