CCTS Forum (formerly the CCTS Working Group)
in PCAMS, 1924 7th Avenue South

4:45-6 p.m. 


At this month's meeting, we'll discuss program development and application preparation for training and research program awards.  As more applications encourage interaction with CTSAs, we want to learn what would be most helpful to leaders of these efforts.


The CCTS Forum will now run from 4:45-6 p.m., in order to provide time for informal interaction as well as the formal presentations. Please note: These typically take place on the first Wednesday of each month, but the 6/18 meeting is taking the place of the June and July standing meetings.
