Join the CDTR and NCAI Policy Research Center for Strengthening Tribal-Academic Research Partnerships – an interactive learning experience with resources to strengthen governance, trust and culture in research partnerships.

The event will feature an interactive learning experience where participants confront various challenges and decisions over the course of a 20-year timeframe. The goal of the activity is to simulate relationship building and decision making to arrive at the best outcomes for the health of the tribal community and the sustainability of the research project.

Apply principles from “Strengthening Tribal + Academic Research Partnerships”  in our afternoon proposal writing event. Learn more about the CDTR Next Steps Proposal Writing Workshop here.


Moving Research to Publication: Health Equity in Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Treatment

October 5th, 2018

On October 5th, the CDTR and Institute for Public Health hosted 30 investigators for the collaborative event, “Moving Research to Publication: Health Equity in Diabetes and Obesity Prevention and Treatment.” The goal of the day was to facilitate individual and collaborative publications among CDTR investigators pursuing research in diabetes or obesity prevention. Writing groups formed around similar research interests and participants represented a variety of disciplines. All CDTR partner institutions were represented, with participants attending from Washington University, University of Missouri School of Medicine, the Council on Black Health, and the National Congress of American Indians.

We look forward to supporting the collaborations initiated during the event and supporting our members as they work on their manuscripts.

If you are interested in utilizing CDTR support for your manuscript, please contact center staff.
