CLTR-503-01 Core Clinical and Translational Research Seminars
Fall for 2017-2018
Faculty:
The CCTRS provides exemplar presentations of clinical and translational research, selected from a wide variety of disciplines but anchored by the application of new research methods, or focus on understudied population or patient groups, or introducing novel interdisciplinary collaborations and approaches. Our intent is to catalyze new thinking about research design, new collaborations, cross-disciplinary application of approaches, tools, or datasets to advance translational team science to improve human health. Students will attend the monthly research grand rounds presentations (either in person or remotely via Adobe Connect®) and then meet the following week to discuss the presentation critically, often with the speaker joining in our discussion. Following each discussion session, students will be expected to choose one critical idea or theme or focus from the lecture, identify and read at least one (peer-reviewed and published) paper related directly to that theme or focus and then submit a short (2-3page) essay that draws upon both the presentation and the paper to frame and address a clinical or translational research question of interest to the student.
