The membership is a Who's Who of the academic leadership of the medical schools in the Midwest. CSCTR has active members throughout the Midwest U.S. and Canada. The society publishes the monthly Translational Research: The Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine and holds an Annual Meeting that contains cutting-edge papers, posters, lectures, and state-of-the-art forums.
