The Meaning of Translational Research and Why It Matters:
Questions that focus content
  1. What are the regulatory requirements for the proposed research?
  2. Is Institutional committee review and approval required before the proposed research can begin?  For example, will animals, humans, recombinant DNA or hazardous material be used?
  3. Will research involve collaboration with investigators from other institutions and if so, will research material be transferred between University of Colorado Denver and other institutions?
