Another vital role is training the next generation of researchers. The Ohio State University CCTS leverages expertise from colleges across the university including the seven Health Science colleges, the OSU Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Leadership of the 10 programs of the CCTS include faculty from Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Optometry, Public Health, Veterinary Medicine, and Dentistry.
