5pm-8pm  |  McNamara Alumni Center  |  Minneapolis

Learn about research being conducted across the translational spectrum and all career stages -- from undergraduate to senior faculty -- at the University of Minnesota through our Annual CTSI Poster Session and Reception. See the work of CTSI Career Development Scholars, hear directly from Scholars about the potential translational impact of their research and the science behind it, and network with the mentors as well. CTSI's Community Health Collaborative Grant recipients and Scholars from the BIRCWH Women's Health K12, and Melendy Programs have also been invited to present posters in addition to CTSI-Ed Scholars.

CTSI's mission, along with other Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) sites across the country, is to accelerate the pace of scientific discoveries and translate their impact on human health. An interdisciplinary approach is essential to this mission and that's why CTSI is now including Community Impact Judges as part of this annual program. Their critique will help the scholars better understand how their research could impact human health -- beyond the lab and into the community. CTSI is honored to include the following community judges: 

  • Julius Stern John, 3M
  • David Godfrey, HCMC
  • Alvine Laure Ekame, African Health Action
  • Huda Ahmed, Department of Family Medicine & Community Health
  • Tim Tripp, University Economic Development, UMN
  • Jim Bracke, EPIEN Medical Inc.

Help celebrate outstanding scholars and mentors at the event's awards ceremony.
