17 Feb Regional Strategic Planning: What are we doing right, and what can we improve?
This month, we invited our partner organizations to answer two questions: “What is CTSI doing right?” and “What can CTSI do better?”
As part of the Institute’s robust regional strategic planning process, CTSI Director, Dr. Reza Shaker, is soliciting new, innovative ideas from all institutional members and the community at large. Based upon this feedback, the results of our strategic planning will yield new and improved ways to strengthen our relationship with our eight partner institutions, and we will learn how to better engage our community in the work of scientific discovery.

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 CTSI. We also look to the community to find and train the next generation of Clinical and Translational Researchers.
During the regional strategic planning process, all ideas and opinions are welcome. CTSI would like to open the doors to have you join us face-to-face for our upcoming meetings on March 4th, March 25th or April 8th. Please check our website for the events, as dates and times may change. Or, you can email your ideas and suggestions to us at any time.
