2024 Translational Science Ensemble Awards

2024 Translational Science Ensemble Awards

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI) will advance the field of translational science by funding two Translational Science Research Ensembles, $50,000 each.

The product of these Ensembles should result in the identification and removal of obstacles and roadblocks that slow the performance and progress of Translational Research and expedite the delivery of healthcare solutions. Teams will form around an identified translational barrier of their choice, and create solutions that accelerate the translational process.
