The institutions of the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance leverage their complementary strengths to accelerate clinical and translational education, research, and community engagement to impact health in Georgia and beyond. Translation is the process of turning observations in the laboratory, clinic, and community into interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public.

Day Two
: Clinical and translational science advances within the state of Georgia will be showcased through abstract and poster presentations, a KL2 panel discussion, and dynamic keynote speakers.

Objectives:
1. Describe how the Georgia CTSA can support your research and increase grant funding
2. Network with national leaders and NIH staff in translational science and education
3. Share research with others and develop new collaborations

    Influenza vaccination by microneedle patch: results from a phase 1 clinical trial
    Could influenza vaccination by microneedle patch improve vaccine efficacy and uptake? Rouphael and Prausnitz will present findings from a translational study culminating in a phase 1 clinical trial to show how microneedle patch vaccination can increase vaccine immunogenicity and enable increased access to influenza vaccination, in part through self-administration of the vaccine.
  • Herman A. Taylor, Jr., MD, Professor of Medicine, Director, Cardiovascular Research Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine,
