Indiana CTSI co-directors

Dear all,

This month, we are pleased to announce the winner of the prestigious 2021 Watanabe Prize for translational research, who will also serve as the keynote speaker for this year’s Indiana CTSI annual meeting, taking place Friday, September 24. Dr. Nancy J. Brown, Dean of Yale Medical School, and a member of the National Academy of Medicine is the winner of this year’s prize. Her research has focused on the pharmacology of drugs for the treatment of diabetes and its effects on cardiovascular disease and obesity. Dr. Brown’s research helped inform the focus of this year’s annual meeting titled: Preventing the Smoldering Pandemic of Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome.

Speaking of important meetings, tomorrow you are all invited to attend, as we host our first-ever Indiana CTSI / IU School of Medicine Regional Campuses Retreat featuring presenters from Evansville, Terre Haute, Muncie, Gary, Fort Wayne and more; all in an effort to accomplish the theme of the event which is Building Collaborations in Health.

Don’t close this month’s newsletter before you look over the upcoming events on the Indiana CTSI calendar and available funding, to find out which opportunities can best benefit your research.

Sarah and Sharon
Co-directors, Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute
