CTSI offering predoctoral training awards in translational research

October 15, 2018

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is seeking applicants for special predoctoral training awards in translational research. In biomedical terminology, translational research refers to what is popularly termed "bench to bedside," the process by which research in the lab "translates" into patient treatment. Translation may involve applying discoveries made during research (in the lab, through animal studies, etc.) to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans, or carrying out research aimed at enhancing the adoption of best practices, or both.
