ICTS Translational Science Day, May 12, 2015

Call for Workshop Proposals

On May 12, 2015, the ICTS will be hosting the 7th Annual Translational Science Day at the UCI Student Center. This conference is an opportunity for faculty, students, and community partners to come together for a day of workshops, research posters, presentations and networking.

This year the ICTS would like to invite researchers interested in chairing one of the workshops to submit workshop proposals.

The workshops’ goals are to provide new information and insight related to the broad theme of translational science. We are looking for workshops that are engaging, appeal to a broad audience and elicit audience participation, rather than the more traditional format of lectures and brief discussion. Successful formats in the past have included an emphasis on panel discussions; however, we are open to any approaches that enhance lively discussion and discourse.

To apply please provide:

  • 1 page detailed summary, which includes the following information:
    • Title
    • How this topic relates to the theme of translational science
    • Who will be presenting/participating
    • What structure your workshop will have
  • A letter of support from your unit Director, department Chair or School Dean

Apply Here

Applications due November 19, 2014

If you have any questions please contact Diana Vigil dvigil1@uci.edu; 949-824-1231

 

A QUICK PRIMER ON “TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH”

  • Translation is the process of turning observations in the laboratory and clinic into interventions that have the potential to improve the health of individuals and the public - including diagnostics and therapeutics, medical procedures and behavioral changes.
  • The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Mission Statement: To catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing and implementation of interventions that tangibly improve human health across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.
