l Form

The Resiliency Technologies (“RT”) scientific advisory board (RTSAB) seeks to support research that furthers our mission of deploying evidence-based interventions (EBIs) that support child & adolescent resiliency. The RTSAB welcomes proposals from all investigators interested in incorporating EBIs into their research program.  RT requires an initial study synopsis submission for review. RTSAB / staff will review the study synopsis. Details regarding necessary materials for the initial study synopsis submission are available below.


To submit a study synopsis, select the “Apply for RT Research Collaboration Support” link.  Principal investigator information and a brief overview of study components are required for submission of the study synopsis form. A confirmation email will be sent upon completion of the form. Our team will review the study synopsis and communicate a decision to proceed or to decline the proposal to the submitting investigator.

Our team may request additional information in the form of a full research proposal following study synopsis review. If so, our team will be in communication regarding the additional information needed.
