Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research

Patient taking diagnostic breathing test
IAMI works in partnership with, and as part of, Frontiers: The Heartland Institute for Clinical and Translational Research to accelerate the process by which laboratory discoveries become patient treatments.

To advance innovations in translational research, Frontiers encourages collaboration and resource sharing among a network of scientists and clinicians at academic institutions and health care systems across Kansas and the Kansas City metropolitan area. Frontiers investigators work collaboratively to speed the translation of laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, to engage communities in clinical research efforts and to train a new generation of clinical and translational researchers.

To address the emerging issues of health care, Frontiers investigators work with leading institutions across the country and with communities to identify their health care needs.
