Advancing Translational Research by Design 11/9/10

Building sciences and design“Advancing Translational Research by Design” – The MedStar Institute for Innovation (MI2) Center for Building Sciences and the Center for Advanced Design and Research (CADRE) are pleased to sponsor “Advancing Translational Research by Design”. This expert panel intends to focus on the design features for clinical facilities (bed towers and outpatient units) that could potentially enhance the translational research process.

Our objective is to understand potential improvements for the design of inpatient and outpatient facilities with the purpose of advancing the knowledge for both the research facility owner and the design realms. The participants will comprise of invited experts from the realms of research, research administration and facility design/planning. The session will involve a brief historical review of design for translational research. The majority of the time will be interactive sessions with several structured questions. A white paper suitable for publication will be developed. All participants will be included as authors unless an individual opts not to be included.

This half-day interactive panel is to be held November 9th from 11am to 3pm at 110 Irving Street NW, Washington, DC 20010, 6th floor Boardroom – Washington Hospital Center, MedStar Health. Lunch will be provided. Please contact Jeff Collins at 202-877-5252 for additional information.

Disclosure: The proceedings, content of any papers/publications, and their dissemination will be fully under the control of MI2 and CADRE with the sole purpose of education and advancement of the knowledge of design. MI2 is a part of MedStar Health (a not for profit health system) and CADRE was originally established by HKS to function as a separately governed not for profit research center.
