Target Audience and Needs

Clinician scientists, research scientists, postdoctoral fellows, residents, and clinical fellows involved in basic, clinical, and translational research need to receive regular updates on recent advances in research strategies and methodologies to develop expertise in spearheading and leading projects, accessing and analyzing relevant data, preparing results for dissemination and implementation, and pursuing new ideas for investigation.  The series aims to promote new collaborative research partnerships, with an emphasis on translational research, to address health-related challenges and to fulfill a core education requirement for clinical residency and postdoctoral training on principles of scientific inquiry.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures and literature review.
