The fifth annual meeting of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at the Hine Hall Auditorium on the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis.
This event is open to anyone who wants to learn more about the Indiana CTSI as well as the resources and funding available through its many programs. A complete agenda is online. Registration closes Sept. 10, but registration will be accepted at the door on a first come, first served basis.
The annual meeting is also a venue for attendees to hear about the latest biomedical advances and opportunities from outstanding guest and local speakers.
This year's keynote speaker is Tadataka ("Tachi") Yamada, M.D., executive vice president and chief medical and scientific officer for Takeda Pharmaceuticals and past president of the Global Health Program at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who has been named recipient of the inaugural Watanabe Prize in Translational Research. This award is named in honor of the late August M. Watanabe, M.D., who following an outstanding career at the IU School of Medicine, served as president of the Lilly Research Laboratories at Eli Lilly & Co. The award is made possible through an endowment established by the friends of Dr. Watanabe at the IU School of Medicine.
Also to be announced at the meeting are the names of two recipients of the Indiana CTSI's Young Investigator Awards named Watanabe Translational Scholars. Additional presenters will highlight a variety of new opportunities for funding, collaborations and novel technologies available to basic scientists, clinicians and community partners through the Indiana CTSI.
A scientific poster session to highlight Indiana CTSI researchers, trainees, services and institutional partners is also scheduled. To submit an abstract for the scientific poster session, please register no later than Friday, Sept. 6.
All relevant posters will be accepted up to the maximum capacity and should be no larger than 4' X 4'.
