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.
