2nd Annual CCTS Translational Symposium

Location: The Lodge at Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores, AL
Registration & Details: https://www.uab.edu/ccts/news-events/training-symposium#registration
More Information: The 2nd Annual CCTS Translational Training Symposium will take place in mid-November in Gulf Shores, AL, a location selected for its reasonable distance from a majority of Partners, not to mention proximity to the beach. With significant input by the Training Steering Committee and many across the Partner Network, the agenda will address topics related to grant writing, best practices in clinical research, community engagement and translational thinking. The meeting will also include several opportunities for networking as we continue to foster a community of scholars across the network.

Recognizing an opportunity to enhance the training of clinical coordinators, a need emphasized by Drs. Higginbotham and Gillespie, the CCTS Training Symposium will include a session to provide critical highpoints in the conduct of clinical trials. This is meant to be an important overview of the key issues and considerations that could set the stage for how to leverage existing training programs or create new venues to go into deeper detail.
