The CTSA Program Discussion Forum (DF) page is live on the CLIC website. Discussion Forums can be initiated at any time by completing a New Discussion Forum Request form . DFs are provided a secure NCATS Google space and Google toolbox to use to facilitate their efforts to advance CTSA Program objectives in high priority areas in clinical and translational science. Similar to predecessor unstructured group formats, (think Key Function Committees) the DF platform allows teams to informally gather (no CLIC support) to discuss more specific, focused translational science topics in depth. A potential goal of DFs may be to develop plans for projects that fill identified gaps and/or further the program objectives through a CTSA Program working group proposal. As with other program activities you cannot use a DF to develop a grant application or for discussion of funding.
