The CTSA Program PIs and the IDeA-CTR Program PIs have been encouraged to work together to address translational science barriers. One opportunity for collaborative efforts is the acceleration of clinical and translational research to address health disparities and the significant burden of conditions that disproportionately affect rural, minority, and other underserved populations (NOT-TR-19-015). To help facilitate the sharing of ideas, a collaborative lunch session is planned for those who are interested. The session is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 27, from 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. in the Washington B room, Hyatt Regency Crystal City, 2799 Jefferson Davis Highway. The format of the session will be open mic with the opportunity to talk about existing collaborations or new opportunities to collaborate between CTSA hubs and IDeA-CTRs of collaborations. Visit the 2018 IDeA-CTR Directory and the CTSA Program hubs Directory for a complete list of institutions and for more information.
