Registration and hotel reservations are now available for the 2017 Creative Scientist Workshop sponsored by the State University of New York at Buffalo Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) with ongoing input from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). This year’s workshop is focused on developing collaborative proposals to address the number one obstacle to successful clinical trials: recruitment of participants.
The Creative Scientist Workshop is not a standard conference. The facilitated workshop format employs a creative problem-solving approach now being used by NSF, NIH and NCATS to catalyze scientific innovation. Workshop attendees will frame the problem space from diverse perspectives and present and discuss a range of innovative case studies and potential best practices.
Most importantly, our deliberate focus on creative problem-solving is designed to catalyze the generation of promising novel solutions and to promote the early development of innovative, transdisciplinary, multi-CTSA grant proposals to NCATS.
