Partnering to drive Personalized Medicine.

In light of changing market forces and the need to realign our resources to meet current market needs, CHI has decided to close the Center for Translational Research (CTR), effective March 31, 2016. CTR is one of three operating units of the CHI Institute for Research and Innovation (CIRI) and is based in Baltimore, MD.

CHI was one of the first national health care systems to undertake research to identify genetic markers predictive of disease. Since then, the legal environment and the marketplace for genetics-related services have changed.

CHI's Center for Clinical Research (CCR), which conducts clinical trials and healthcare research, will continue operations as usual in support of federal and industry sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring a specimen collection protocol, please contact the Center for Clinical Research.

If you have questions about CIRI business operations, please contact Christine Cameron, Director of Finance and Business Planning at 720-874-1127 or
