The Wright Center could not and does not advance human health in a vacuum. It seeks to embody the same Team Science principles that it instills in its researchers by engaging the community around it and leveraging the infrastructure of its research university and health system. How can we collaborate with you?
The Wright Center collaborates across disciplines within our own institution, supporting researchers and sharing leadership. Other VCU centers, institutes, registries, projects and collaboratives integrate with the Wright Center’s mission and vision through shared resources, multidisciplinary research studies and the people that lead them.
Academic research centers, health care providers, nonprofits and government entities – the Wright Center’s community partners are diverse and expand the center’s geographic footprint across central and Eastern Virginia.
The Clinical & Translational Science Award (CTSA) network links the more than 60 institutions across the country funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the National Institutes of Health. The Wright Center engages in and supports national projects and resources with the network that advance the translation of research into patient care, engage communities in clinical research and train a new generation of clinical and translational researchers.
The Wright Center fosters and maintains industry connections that share the center’s goal of improving the health of our communities. Our strategic collaborations with industry help us accelerate our mission of advancing science for the betterment of human health.
