University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty interested in conducting research that falls along the translational science spectrum are invited to attend a virtual session on March 7. 

Registration for the session, scheduled for 11 a.m. to noon, is required to receive a Zoom link. 

The session is geared toward Husker faculty who want to explore how their research interests align with translational research focused on human health and disease, or join a team working in this area. Translational research includes preclinical, clinical, implementation and public health research. 

The Great Plains IDeA-CTR is a valuable resource for Nebraska researchers looking to expand their clinical and translational research efforts. A major goal of the session is to introduce Husker faculty to resources available through this entity, which include pilot funding, early career investigator programs, mentorship training, mini-sabbatical funding to support knowledge acquisition and research studios to facilitate pre-submission grant reviews. 

Other goals of the virtual session include: 

Jen Nelson, assistant vice chancellor for research, and Mark Riley, associate dean for research in the College of Engineering, will lead the session, along with Bethany Lowndes, assistant professor of neurological sciences and health systems engineering liaison for the Great Plains IDeA-CTR at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  

Contact Nelson or Riley with questions or for additional information.
