Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI)
CTSI accelerates discoveries to benefit human health. It is a bridge between basic scientists and clinical researchers and promotes collaboration to discover new treatments, medical procedures and ways to diagnose disease. It helps the Penn State community move its health research more efficiently and effectively out of the science laboratories and into use by the people who need it.

Penn State Social Science Research Institute (SSRI)
SSRI fosters collaborative research that addresses critical human and social problems at the local, national, and international levels. We do so by bringing together researchers from different disciplines around emerging areas of study, and by providing consultation, financial support, shared, accessible infrastructure, and services to social scientists at Penn State.
