Welcome to the Dakota Community Collaborative on Translational Activity.
What is the DaCCoTA?
The goal of the DaCCoTA is to bring together researchers and clinicians with diverse experience from across the region to develop unique and innovative means of combating disease in North and South Dakota.
We believe advances in disease treatment will come from broad approaches by collective groups of clinical and basic researchers who are focused on conducting clinical/translational research.
The DaCCoTA is supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number U54GM128729.
