Foundations of Translational Research Bootcamp
Beginning in 2007, the University of Miami developed a Research Training and Career Development Office. As a product of this effort, the UMMSM created our Foundations of Translational Research Bootcamp, catered towards research-intensive graduate students and medical students, postdoctoral fellows, new faculty and other early career researchers. This 40 hour course, implemented over 5 days, serves as an intense introduction to translational science. Each day includes educational preparatory lectures and a presentation by UM’s finest, highly funded “hot shot” senior researchers. Topics include an introduction to types and tools of research, clinical study design, basic statistics, an update on molecular biology and genetics for the clinician, protection of human subjects; the how- tos of the IRB, scientific writing, and grantsmanship.
Bootcamp 2013, September 9-13. Online registrations coming soon.
