Centers & Institutes
Since its inception, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) has
seen the establishment of numerous centers and institutes that have made important
contributions to the accomplishment of TTUHSC mission and goals.
Centers and Institutes at TTUHSC are multidisciplinary and/or interdisciplinary groups
of faculty and their associates who have been brought together for the pursuit of
research, education, and/or clinical activities. The goals of each center and institute
typically require substantial collaboration and cooperation between two or more disciplines
from within and outside of TTUHSC.
To achieve their goals, each center/institute strives to support the mission and vision
of TTUHSC by:
- Encouraging and accelerating the application of knowledge obtained from research to
patient care and education;
- Establishing and evaluating innovative training and educational programs; and
- Enhancing quality and productivity.
