"The CTRSC has been phenomenal in guiding us through the complexities of research. As amateur research clinicians, this process can be very intimidating and time consuming. Their expertise with data management systems, IRB approval, and protocol streamlining has been instrumental in making our international research project possible."

Training

From our annual Principles of Clinical and Translational Research Course to our research scholarships for training of international students and investigators, we offer a wide variety of classroom and immersion experiences for basic, clinical and population-based investigators. We also provide training for clinical study coordinators.

Principles of Clinical and Translation Research Course

October 11th-17th, 2013


To address the Nation's challenges in research, the NIH developed a series of initiatives, collectively known as the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research. As part of these initiatives, the NIH has proposed to re-engineer clinical research with the establishment of a new research model defined as Clinical and Translational Research. The primary goal of this course is to review the process of Clinical and Translational Research from generation of the research idea to publication of the study manuscript. For more information about the course download the symposium brochure.

Symposium: Clinical and Translational Research in Infectious Diseases

October 18th, 2013


The traditional university research model has generated communication gaps among basic investigators, clinical investigators, and practicing physicians. To close these gaps, the NIH has proposed a new research model called Clinical and Translational Research. A critical component of the CTR model is to perform research using multidisciplinary and multispecialty teams. To further develop the current multidisciplinary and multispecialty research teams at the University of Louisville, we developed a Clinical and Translational Research in Infectious Diseases Symposium. The primary objectives of the symposium are to:

  1. increase the opportunities to learn from each other's disciplines
  2. develop a platform to enhance collaboration between basic scientists, clinical investigators, and practicing physicians with interests in the field of infections.
