CTSI Academy

CTSI Academy is a one-stop shop for training in the practical aspects of translational research.
CTSI Academy_Intro Component


Fundamental to our success is the availability of a well-trained translational workforce. An important segment of this workforce includes the non-investigator personnel that assist in various capacities in a successful research program. CTSI Academy offers a specific focus on training and education for this segment of research personnel, in addition to offering important aspects of research training to PIs. Our theme is “Advancing Health through Education in Research and Discovery.”

The Academy aims to transform training and education for current and future translationists by narrowing the gaps in education and training on the practical aspects for the conduct of research in collaboration with the MCW Office of Research and our partner institutions.
