CATALiST Seminar Series

CATALiST– Collaborative Approach to Training Advances and Learning Innovations in the Science of Translation

The CATALiST Seminar Series aims to provide an introduction to innovative approaches in clinical research as a supplement to the training program scholars and other graduate trainees are already receiving. Content will include entrepreneurship, translational science, use of technology, informatics and mHealth in clinical research. Local and national experts in these research methods will present topics to serve as an introduction to the science.

These seminars will further catalyze the development of new diagnostics, therapeutics, and preventive inter­ventions while driving innovation in clinical and translational research methods.  Discussions will emphasize innovative education, training models and methods. The approach to innovative curricula would necessitate crossing traditional boundaries between professional schools.

All researchers, faculty staff and students are encouraged to attend.
