Penn State CTSI

The most important challenge facing academic medical centers is translating new research findings into tangible health benefits that improve lives. Penn State has created the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) to serve as an independent but highly integrated academic engine for clinical and translational science.

The CTSI builds on the strong tradition and rich experience of collaborative interdisciplinary thinking that exists at Penn State and brings this wide breadth of academic endeavor—including traditional biomedical activities, social sciences, arts, communications, economics, education, engineering, ethics, and health care delivery and policy—to bear on health.

The long-range goal of the CTSI is to develop, implement and make available to the community at large new methods to predict, prevent and effectively treat human disease.

Everyone Needs an Elevator Pitch: Strategies to Engage Non-Technical Audiences on Technical Research Topics

Andy Gustafson
Smeal College of Business

Skilled scientists and engineers must be equipped with not only technical expertise but also with communication skills that can get others interested in their areas of research. This could mean the difference between success or failure in launching a new business, gaining a grant, or garnering support from the community at large regarding why your work matters. Learn strategies from a business communication expert to condense your key message into a 'pitch' that can be given in the duration of a typical elevator ride.

The presentation is hosted by Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment.
