Join us for the first CTSA Conversations of 2017!

Topic: NCATS Trial Innovation Network (TIN) – “What’s in It for You, for Us?”

Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm

Date: 1/27/17

Location: Brinkhous-Bullitt, 219. UNC 
Chapel Hill.

The Trial Innovation Network is a new collaborative initiative within the CTSA Program and is composed of three key organizational partners – the CTSA Program Hubs, the Trial Innovation Centers (TICs), and the Recruitment Innovation Center (RIC). The vision for the Trial Innovation Network is to innovatively address critical roadblocks in clinical trials and accelerate the translation of novel interventions into life-saving therapies.

N.C. A&T Led Conversations Series May 25, 2016 at UNC-Chapel Hill

N.C. A&T shared this overview of its research strengths for collaborative projects and current projects underway.

Dr. Salil Desai is an Associate professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering and Joint Faculty of Bioengineering at N.C. A&T. Desai directs the Integrated Nan and Bio Manufacturing Laboratory at N.C. A&T and is an affiliate faculty of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering between N.C. A&T and UNC-Greensboro.

Dr. Perpetua Muganda has broad research expertise in tumor virology, molecular carcinogenesis, and molecular toxicology. Her current and future interests focus on deducting the role of viruses in human cancers. Towards this end, Dr. Muganda’s laboratory is currently working towards investigating the prevalence of specific viral sequences in control and breast cancer tumor specimens, using publicly available next generation sequencing data and tools.

Dr. Shyam Aravamudhan is an Associate Professor in Nanoengineering. His interests lie at the intersection of micro/nanotechnology and life sciences, with an overarching goal to question and better understand how the biological system functions. The hypothesis is that by using the unique phenomena at the micro and nano-length scales and by shrinking devices down to a scale comparable to typical biological system fundamental biological questions can be addressed.
