Research Forum Application Process
Research projects that emphasize the following cross-cutting research themes established by the ICTS are strongly encouraged to develop research concepts by working with the Research Forum Program:
Theme 1: Translate the findings of genetic/genomic research into clinical research and practice
Theme 2: Accelerate the development and evaluation of new therapeutics
Theme 3: Conduct dissemination and implementation research to improve the transfer of clinical research discoveries into practice
In developing applications to the RF, investigators should generally strive to show a DIRECT or CLEAR LINK to human health or disease for proposals that deal with animal models or in vitro culture systems.
See the Research Forum Application Process for full details.
