Pitt CSD has a unique combination of internationally-recognized scientific and clinical strengths, active research partnerships with world-class experts in computational modeling, neuroimaging, engineering and data science, and close clinical partnerships with nationally-recognized health care providers. These partnerships enable us to provide hands-on training experiences relevant to each step in the preclinical-to-clinical translation process. We have a diverse funding portfolio with support from federal sponsors such as NIH, NSF, PCORI and DARPA. In 2019-2020, we had 20 active federal grants.
