Organization & Structure
The West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute's structure has been designed to provide transparency in daily processes and decision-making and to focus on tangible outcomes for long term sustainability. Operational areas have been established to best serve investigators and provide clarity in processes and reporting. An org chart highlighting programmatic areas and staff leaders and administrative support staff is available here (PDF).
WVCTSI has established strong Internal Advisory and External Advisory Committees to provide guidance and oversight for the organization's leadership.
Core leadership is comprised of faculty or clinical leaders in their respective areas who bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the dynamic WVCTSI team.
