You're settling in to what conducting clinical and translational research looks like during the time of COVID-19. After you've acknowledged the new COVID-19 research guidelines, take advantage of the list we’ve assembled of CCTS tools that can make a difference for your progress over the coming weeks. All of these offerings can be accessed with ease from the comfort of your home office, kitchen table or couch:

  • Schedule a panel. Panels are continuing by virtual meeting, and they are an effective use of time—panels provide expert feedback that makes you 3-4x likely to receive extramural funding subsequently! Get started by reviewing the type of panel you’ll need and then completing a Panel Request Form.

  • Join a CCTS online meeting or training event. Connect with others while you learn topics most relevant to this unprecedented time. CCTS has been utilizing Zoom and other technology to provide meetings and trainings that are helpful across a variety of subject matter. For example, this week you can add to your calendar three sessions teaching the skills needed for successful virtual teams, and next week you can join a Research Seminar Series session on IRB Waivers. New virtual learning opportunities are continuing to develop, so keep an eye on upcoming virtual events.

  • Peruse the CCTS Video Channel. New material is posted frequently, and most videos provide the option to toggle back and forth between the presenter and their slide deck. If you ever miss a CCTS event, you can always view it afterwards using this tool. (Want to review CCTS video content from further back? Older material is available here).
