February 15 | 4-6:00pm; 3:30 pre-event | Mississippi Room, Coffman Memorial Union
Learn how the Clinical and Translational Science Institute is advancing forward, and how CTSI’s funding programs and expert resources can help bring your discoveries into practice. Join us before and after the formal presentation to network with colleagues, find research collaborators, and meet CTSI staff. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
Clinical and translational research can include many scientific and logistical obstacles. CTSI works to cut through these by providing research support to University researchers – across the entire clinical and translational research spectrum. Learn how CTSI can help advance your research and career at this informal event.
The event will include networking time to help build out your professional network at the University, an introduction to CTSI's key resources and a look at its future direction, highlights from CTSI's career development programs and scholars, and an opportunity to ask questions. Plus, before the official event even begins, there's an opportunity to learn about a relatively new resource available to you as a University researcher — CTSI's Community Research Van.
