CLIC Forum

One of the goals of the CTSA Program is to encourage team science and to tackle system-wide scientific and operational problems in translational research that no one team can overcome in isolation. This involves collaboration and teamwork. The CLIC Forum aims to help foster that. The Forum is a place for you to ask the consortium questions, discuss best practices, bounce ideas off each other and share opportunities. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ questions or ideas – the more you ask and share, the more you’ll learn.

Within the Forum, there are different categories: you can use these categories to direct your posts to a more targeted audience. Not sure where your post fits? No problem. Use the ‘General’ category.
