The overarching goal of Research Technologies is to provide the infrastructure and programmatic foundation to support existing and developing technology resources to enhance translational research and transform the existing clinical research enterprise in the ACTSI community. The program focus is in the following five areas of emphasis: genomics, imaging, immunology/vaccine, molecular screening technology and animal models of human disease.
Four key program components support Research Technologies' goals:
To support rapid evaluation and translation of high-impact emerging technologies
To promote technology training and foster interdisciplinary collaborations
To promote novel methodological developments
To facilitate use of core technologies and enhance opportunities for collaboration among translational investigators
