CTSI soliciting input during strategic planning process
Feb. 21, 2014 College News - This month, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) of Southeast Wisconsin invited our partner organizations to answer these questions:
“What is CTSI doing right?” & “What can CTSI do better?”
As part of the Institute’s robust strategic planning process, CTSI Director Dr. Reza Shaker is soliciting new, innovative ideas from all institutional members and the community at-large. Based upon that feedback, the CTSI will develop new and improved ways to strengthen its relationship with our eight partner institutions and more effectively engage the community in the work of scientific discovery.
“CTSI does not operate in a vacuum,” said Carlos De La Pena, CTSI Administrator. “As a community-focused institution, for us to continue to support innovative scientific research, it is important that we know the interests of the communities that we serve and their health and wellness needs. Then we can see how our research discoveries can be translated into new therapeutic interventions to make Wisconsin a healthier place to live.”
Engaging individuals in scientific discovery is key to the future of the CTSI as we look to the community to find, and train, the next generation of clinical and translational researchers. (See what our SMART teams are doing in local high schools.)
During the strategic planning process, all ideas and opinions are welcome. Everyone is invited to attend one of their face-to-face meetings on March 4, March 25 or April 8. Or, you can email your ideas and suggestions to the CTSI, CTSI2.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information on the times and locations of the face-to-face meetings is available on the CTSI Website.
