patients."

A March 15 Town Hall at CHOP introduced CTI to the Hospital's researchers, who are being encouraged to submit concise proposals by April 15 for projects to be considered. In July 2013, the steering committee will choose projects for funding.

This expedited timetable is much faster than the typical schedule for federally sponsored research. In contrast to many partnerships between private industry and academia that focus on one highly defined end-product, CTI is designed to identify cutting-edge areas of research in areas of high unmet need that hold strong potential for therapeutic interventions.

"Working with leading academic researchers is a key part of the CTI model," said Anthony Coyle, Ph.D., CTI's Chief Scientific Officer. "CHOP's world-class reputation as a leading research hospital means it is an ideal partner for CTI as we continue our determined efforts to translate exciting science into effective medicines for patients."

"It's extremely rewarding for our researchers to see their scientific work translated into bedside treatments that directly benefit children," said Ellen Purpus, Ph.D., director of CHOP's Office of Technology Transfer. "This partnership will help to expedite that process."
