Nucleating Workshop on Opioid Overdose Prevention


Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 10:30am to 4:30pm

Organized By

Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI)

Event Details

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast WI (CTSI) is presenting an upcoming Nucleating Workshop focusing on opioid overdose prevention in our community. The workshop is being conducted in collaboration with the Milwaukee Community Opioid Prevention Effort (COPE), the Neuroscience Research Center (NRC) and the Comprehensive Injury Center (CIC) at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW)

The primary objective of this interactive workshop is to formulate and facilitate multi-disciplinary team research collaborations which will target opioid overdose prevention strategies, resulting in the development of research proposals that are competitive for receiving local and/or federal funding. The workshop is intended to bring individuals and organizations together in addressing the opioid crisis, clearly identifing knowledge gaps, and developing collaborative research partnerships with the mission of filling the identified gaps.

During the workshop, brief presentations will be made identifying knowledge gaps and developing research ideas. Finally, project officers from various federal granting agencies are invited to provide insight on available opioid-related research funding.

Following the workshop, participants are encouraged to form multi-disciplinary teams and apply for one of three planned opioid-related CTSI Proposal Development Grants, and receive administrative support for coordinating groups to facilitate the development of applications for federal funding.


·  Members of community organizations with programs, activities, or initiatives related to opioid overdose prevention as well as individuals with lived experience and/or interest in opioid overdose prevention.


·  Members of the academic, medical, basic science and/or pharmacological community whose research interests, expertise, clinical practice and/or current research projects are either directly or peripherally related to opioid overdose prevention.
