April CTSA Virtual Town Hall to Highlight CTSA Collaborations Beyond Duke

March 28, 2016

The Duke CTSA (Clinical and Translational Science Award) supports and enables translational medicine at Duke in a variety of ways – from direct funding to investigators, to support of existing programs that speed up the movement of ideas from bench to bedside.

But the Duke CTSA also reaches beyond Duke. As part of the national CTSA Consortium of 60+ institutions, Duke has a variety of collaborations that reach down the road, throughout the state, and across the nation. 

In this quarter's CTSA Virtual Town Hall, we will hear from faculty and staff members involved in collaborations that reach beyond the Duke campus.  From pilot program funding that requires teamwork between institutions, to collaborations to help develop administrative tools that can make research more efficient, we will hear about how tapping into expertise from other institutions can strengthen our own research.

Special presenters at the April 28 CTSA Virtual Town Hall will include:

  • Lynn Sutton, director of operations, DTRI
  • Duke/UNC collaborators from the 2015 Duke/UNC Pilot Programs
    • Charles Gersbach and Aravind Asokan
    • Christoph Hornik and Daniel Gonzalez

Dr. Ebony Boulware, contact PI for the Duke CTSA, will also share information about current CTSA priorities.
