ICTS Translational Science Day, June 3, 2016
Call for Workshop Proposals
On June 3, 2016, the ICTS will be hosting the 8th 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.
The keynote speaker for this year’s event will be Thomas Insel, M.D., Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), focusing on the genetics and neurobiology of mental disorders, as well as transforming approaches to diagnosis and treatment.
This year the ICTS would like to invite researchers interested in chairing a session to submit a proposal for a workshop, symposium, or debates.
The goals of these 1.5-hour sessions are to provide new information and insight related to the broad theme of translational science. We are looking for sessions that are engaging, appeal to a broad audience, and elicit audience participation. 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.
