The Hispanic Alliance for Clinical & Translational Research in Puerto Rico (Alliance) is built upon the previously funded infrastructure known as the Puerto Rico Clinical and Translational Research Consortium (PRCTRC). The Alliance expands the scope of our successful 10-year partnership, by leveraging intellectual and physical resources of the three major academic health sciences centers on the Island:
- University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus
- Universidad Central del Caribe
- Ponce Health Sciences University
The Alliance is founded on our hypothesis that research-driven improvements in health outcomes require an integrated network of key stakeholders representing academia, government, community-based organizations and health care delivery systems working together in an interdisciplinary, multi-sectorial clinical-translational research model.
