• Support the incorporation of new technologies into translational and clinical research.
• Foster collaborations between approved applicants and technology service providers.
• Encourage the utilization of the latest technologies and instrumentation into translational and clinical research.
• Promote the career development of junior faculty members in the ITHS.
