EATRIS Co-initiates Global Network Collaboration
EATRIS has joined forces with three major translational health research organisations to launch a global collaboration in the field of translational research in medicine. Therapeutic Innovation Australia (TIA), The Centre for Drug and Research Development (CDRD) in Canada and the US-based National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) will be working in partnership with EATRIS to identify and seek solutions to major bottlenecks in this key area of medical research. Led by experts from each of the participating organisations, the initiative aims to drive research forward through a number of expert-led meetings.
Giovanni Migliaccio, Scientific Director of EATRIS, commented on the collaboration: “By focusing on the major bottlenecks in the translational process and having access to the expertise of these innovative organisations, we have an excellent opportunity to leverage each other’s strengths and resources in the battle to improve the output of new patient interventions. “This global platform will be focused on real world solutions to some tricky problems, and aims to stimulate much-needed debate and dialogue with key stakeholders.”
