4+ reasons CTSA Program members shouldn’t miss Translational Science 2019


Translational Science 2019 (TS19) is heading to the nation’s capital earlier than ever before—at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park hotel, March 5-8, 2019. As always, CLIC and NCATS have ensured that these dates align with our 2019 Spring CTSA Program Group Meetings, which will take place on March 4 and 5 at the same location. 

The sessions at both the group meetings and TS19 will be cohesivley focused on collaboration, team science, effective communication and other topics to advance clinical and translational efforts. 


And while there are countless reasons why you should stick around after the group meetings to attend TS19, conference organizers have narrowed it down to four key reasons:

1. Hear from experts.

The healthcare field is constantly evolving, and no one understands that better than these key thought leaders. With them, you’ll explore new career development skills, discover new approaches, technologies, and resources, and learn how translational research impacts the public at large.

2. Foster your career development.

Another bonus of attending the annual meeting is the chance to get some free career advice. From the Speed Mentoring Sessions to the Scholars Networking Meeting with Federal Training Partners, you’ll have plenty of time to chat with more experienced professionals in the industry.

3. Explore 500+ abstracts.

With more than 500 abstracts on display, Translational Science 2019 provides a visual route into some of the most innovative research. During the Abstract Receptions, you can engage with your peers from around the country, facilitate discussions around collaboration and funding—and have some fun!

4. Make your voice heard.

Thanks to its world-class research facilities and close proximity to federal officials Washington, DC is the place to be for investigators like you. And Translational Science 2019 puts you front and center. Join your colleagues at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Capitol Hill to influence policy and funding, and impact change.
