Using the Target Product Profile to Drive Translational Research

Project Description

Dr. Conor Caffrey discusses his experience as an academic researcher trying to define a clear target product profile for his technology to diagnose Schistosomiasis, a neglected tropical disease. With the help of CTSI and by carefully assessing the origin of the disease, how it is transmitted, the shortcomings of current diagnostic tools, and what diagnostic measures would best inform clinical decisions for treatment, he was able to successfully create a set of attributes that his new product would require. Sign up to receive updates on videos that highlight the work of Dr. Caffrey and other passionate researchers at UC San Francisco.
