In June 2011, Penn State, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, and Penn State College of Medicine collectively earned one of only 60 national Clinical and Translational Science Award grants to help accelerate the pace of promising research. The $27.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health supports the Penn State Clinical and Translational Institute, or Penn State CTSI, based at Penn State Hershey.
Faculty members who want to learn more about the CTSI and how it can help them with their research should plan to attend CTSI Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 24, in T2500, the media center above the hospital main entrance on the Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine campus. At CTSI Day, faculty, staff, and students will have the opportunity to learn what the CTSI is and what it has accomplished, what’s in store for the future, and what tools it offers to help researchers develop their work.
More details on the day’s agenda are coming. Some of the day’s programming will be streamed live to University Park.
