The network hosted a workshop on May 26-27 2014 on “translational” research on decision making across the life span. The workshop focused on translation across species (from rodents to non-human and human primates) and translation between the laboratory and the everyday life. The event featured short, informal talks about recent findings, current projects, and long-term goals, and small group discussions and brainstorming sessions for new research.
Participants included: Jennifer Bizon, Barry Setlow, Matthew Roesch; Paul Phillips, Steve Chang, Alexandra Rosati, Natalie Ebner, Ifat Levy, Reka Daniel-Weiner, and Gregory Samanez-Larkin
A relevant RFA around this time offered funding for scientists interested in translation across species: Short-term Mentored Career Enhancement Awards in the Basic Behavioral and Social Sciences: Cross-Training at the Intersection of Animal Models and Human Investigation (K18)
