You write the science, let the CCTS do the rest. We welcome all faculty, trainees and students who wish to use panels for their research.
Sharpen your science! We are here to help you brainstorm ideas, generate research questions, meet possible collaborators, fine-tune study design and sharpen your proposals. Whether you want a multi-disciplinary panel for your proposal or a quick, more tailored group, we assemble whatever expertise is needed to work with you to strengthen your project. Meet with a team of scientific experts who have perused your application as a first level of peer review.
WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
Translational Investigator Exchange Service (TIES)
Brings together investigators across disciplines (clinical <-> fundamental, etc.) to identify complementary relationships around a scientific or clinical observation/opportunity. Ideal for researchers who have made an interesting observation or discovery and are unsure how to explore in greater depth a/o how to advance translational investigation.
Nascent Project Panel (NPP)
Multidisciplinary peer group, bringing together expertise in fundamental, clinical and translational science, animal models, human subjects, informatics, biostatistics, evaluation, health disparities, outcomes, etc. This panel meets monthly and is great for research ideas that are still in a conceptual stage toward a deadline several months away. Worthwhile for those projects transitioning between funding mechanisms (e.g., K->R, Intramural pilot -> extramural proposal, revisions, etc.).
Panels Done Quickly (PDQ)
Ad hoc peer group, tailored to scientific content and application needs. Agile and responsive in short time frame. Ideal for research strategies that are in advanced draft state, likely toward a deadline within the proximate 6 weeks.
To complement your application’s development and peer review, the CCTS is happy to connect investigators to experts, one-on-one consultation, including:
