The Clinical and Translational Research Institute (CTRI), an organized research unit at UCSD, was established to provide education, training and infrastructure for clinical research in the San Diego area that encompasses four hospital systems, two universities and four biomedical research organizations. The mission of the CTRI is to create an environment that advances health care through interactions between basic scientists, clinical investigators, community physicians, and patients. The CTRI functions under the direction of Gary S. Firestein, M.D., Dean and Associate Vice Chancellor for Translational Medicine at UC San Diego and has significant support through a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Science.
Additionally, the CTRI is the administrative home of many projects outside the CTSA consortium such as a clinical trial Phase I unit, Office of Coverage Analysis Administration, UC BRAID, XPrize competition, the NIH Center for Accelerated Innovation, and the Coordinating and Information Management Center (CIMC) of CIRM. This Institute crosses VC areas to include the SD Supercomputer Center, Rady School of Management, CALIT2, and collaborates with the 4 other UC campuses with medical schools and CTSA funding, through the BRAID consortium.
Under general supervision, this position will serve as the Applications Developer and Database Programmer for CTRI and its associated projects that have a local, national and international scope and are devoted to harnessing information technologies and telecommunications to improve the competitiveness of the California economy and to benefit society.
