One of the main goals of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is to improve translation of innovative ideas, methods and products related to health. The Department of Food and Nutrition hosted a special Fast Track event on August 27 for its Corporate Affiliates. Connie Weaver, department head and Deputy Director of the Indiana CTSI was the convener for the day.
Throughout the day, these partners learned about the infrastructure developed with the CTSI for accelerating clinical and translational research to food and nutrition industry problems.
These include project development teams, pilot grants, research cores, toxicology screenings, formulations and cGMP manufacturing, as well as other methods and processes. Those participating were able to tour Discovery Park and interact with members of the Purdue core facilities.
The goal of the program was to explore ways in which CTSI infrastructure can address barriers to reaching the market place.
