The 2021-22 LITeS program will be focused exclusively on teams related to clinical or translational research. Nominated and self-nominated teams should comprise 5-8 individuals (primarily faculty), including at least one senior faculty member, who work together to conduct research and/or manage an academic, health service, training or other program. Eligible teams may reside within one school or department and can cross organizational units. We welcome participants from our CCTSI partners at CSU, Boulder, and participating hospitals. We also welcome teams who include previous LITeS graduates; the program will differ in several ways from the program of previous years.
The LITeS program is committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity.
