Nucleating Workshop

Opioid Overdose Prevention Research

Request for Participation

Sponsored by:

The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI)

Hosted by:

Milwaukee Community Opioid Prevention Effort (COPE), the Neuroscience Research Center, and the Comprehensive Injury Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin, The Clinical & Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin (CTSI)

Workshop Information:

Date: May 29, 2018
Location: MCW Main Campus
This workshop is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided to participants

Workshop Objectives:

The primary objective of this workshop is to develop and facilitate multi-disciplinary team research collaborations targeting opioid overdose prevention strategies that will develop research proposals that will be competitive for local and federal funding. This nucleating workshop will provide those individuals and organizations working on addressing the opioid crisis the opportunity to come together to identify knowledge gaps and develop collaborative research partnerships to fill the identified gaps.

During this interactive workshop, brief presentations will be made regarding identified knowledge gaps and developing research ideas. All attendees will then have the opportunity to form investigative groups with the goal of developing research protocols to fill identified knowledge gaps.   Finally, several project officers from various federal granting agencies will be invited to briefly present on available opioid-related research funding.

Following participation in the workshop, multi-disciplinary teams will have the opportunity to apply for one of three planned opioid-related CTSI Proposal Development Grants as well as receive administrative support for coordinating groups to facilitate the development of applications for federal funding.

Target Audience:

  • Members of community organizations with programs, activities, or initiatives related to opioid overdose prevention as well as individuals with lived experience and/or interest in opioid overdose prevention.


  • Members of the academic, medical, basic science and/or pharmacological community whose research interests, expertise, clinical practice and/or current research projects are either directly or peripherally related to opioid overdose prevention.

Request for Speakers:

During the workshop, community organizations will have the opportunity to provide an outline of knowledge gaps and researchers will have the opportunity to outline research they are interested in developing related to opioid overdose prevention. These gaps and research ideas will then be used as topics for round table discussions between attendees.

Please Contact CTSI (414) 955-8200 if you have any questions, or if you would like to participate as a speaker for this event.
