The ambitious academic-public program will foster new research partnerships between university-based health researchers and professionals in the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.
The Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and CHLA and their counterparts at the UCLA CTSI have joined forces with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LA DHS) to not only expand the breadth of research into health care, but also to create new approaches to innovation by the scientists who study health and the professionals who deliver it. The collaboration, the result of extensive groundwork and discussions by research leaders at USC, UCLA and LA DHS, seeks to improve the health of local residents by finding new ways to boost the effectiveness and the efficiency of the County's public health system.
