January 25, 2017

Join Penn State’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) on Tuesday, February 14 from noon – 1:00 p.m. for its monthly Bench to Bedside and Beyond (B3) Lecture with Neal Thomas, M.D., associate dean, Clinical Research at Penn State College of Medicine for “Trial Innovation Network: Improving Clinical Trials.”

The Trial Innovation Network is a new, collaborative initiative within the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) CTSA Program which is composed of three areas: Trial Innovation Centers (TICS), Recruitment Innovation Centers (RICS), and the CTSA Program Hubs. Penn State CTSI is a CTSA Program Hub.

Executing clinical trials more efficiently, effectively and cost conscious is the main goal of the Trial Innovation Network but also to serve as a national laboratory to study, understand and innovate the process of conducting clinical trials. During the session individuals will learn more about the goal, logistics and approaches of the Trial Innovation Network.

The lecture will be held at the College of Medicine, C3621 with videoconference to University Park, 116 Henderson.

The Bench to Bedside and Beyond (B3) Lecture is a series of educational discussions covering a variety of topics on the translational science spectrum. The goal of the series is to provide participants with the information and tools necessary to play a vital role in accelerating discoveries that benefit human health.
