From Particles to Populations
The University of Missouri Institute for Clinical and Translational Science transforms discoveries made in laboratories across MU into community-based products, services and practices for the state and nation. The institute (ICATS) is the focal point of MU's efforts to develop clinical and translational science programs that improve health through better research, education and public service.
Few universities share MU's potential for saving lives through research. With more than 1,000 biomedical scientists and engineers — all on one campus — MU focuses its research on the deadliest diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease, and the most vulnerable patients, including children and the elderly.

Participation and Engagement
Connecting communities with resources for improving health is a primary mission of the MU Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICATS). The institute helps individuals participate in research, and it helps communities appreciate the benefits of clinical and translational science at MU. Conversely, ICATS encourages scientists to take advantage of resources for advancing research that exist only in communities. By engaging scientists and the communities they serve, ICATS intends to strengthen community-university relations in an effort to make real improvements in health and quality of life.
