Working Group Proposal Submission Information

Group Proposal – The CTSA Program Working Groups (WGs) consider and develop solutions around a specific clinical and translational science issue. Working Groups that are APPROVED by CTSA Program Steering Committee will be supported by CLIC. Groups/Individuals interested in forming a WG are REQUIRED to propose and deliver well-defined projects or deliverables that fill identified translational gaps and/or further the CTSA Program objectives in high priority areas in clinical and translational science. More information on the role and structure of WGs can be found in the CTSA Program Groups Guidance document and in the CTSA Program Groups Guidance FAQs.
