Research Forum Program
The Research Forum (RF) Program provides ICTS investigators with a dynamic mechanism to improve and accelerate project and biotechnology development that increases the quality and impact of clinical and translational research. Each RF session is a structured roundtable discussion that brings the PI together with research experts who focus attention to address investigator-generated questions and issues.
WU ICTS RFs
Research Forums remove many of the traditional barriers to effective translational research. Operating through a team-science/team-mentoring approach, the RF provides access to experts who assist investigators implementing high caliber projects that generate successful external funding submissions. Projects are focused on and consistent with translating health discoveries to improvements in human health. There are two RF teams:
- RF-Child Health: For investigators using pediatric populations and studies across the T1-T3 phases to improve child health. Support provided by the ICTS and the Children's Discovery Institute (CDI).
- RF- Medical Health Sciences: Supporting investigators throughout the T1-T4 continuum, particularly in the pathway of basic science and pre-clinical models through clinical trials and implementation into practice and policy.
