Lane Coffee, PhD, MS, is now serving as the IUPUI campus research navigator for the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), which includes the IU School of Medicine. Coffee is also the program manager for the Project Development Teams (PDTs) and Science Communication Studio, which are part of the Translational Research Development Program at the Indiana CTSI.
“Over the past five years, I have enjoyed the opportunity to get to know many of the researchers from the three Indiana CTSI campuses as well as many of our other partners through the PDT mechanism,” said Coffee, who is also an Assistant Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine at IU School of Medicine. “I look forward to using that expertise to help them make new connections and take the next steps to progress their translational research.”
As a navigator, Coffee will help investigators from the IUPUI campus connect with different technological, financial and collaborative resources from across the state. In addition, he also leads a grant writing workshop, that is available to investigators for assistance with all aspects of grantsmanship.
