Every year, YCCI participates in a Scholar Day with a fellow CTSA site, Rockefeller University, to provide Junior Faculty Scholars with the opportunity to learn from experienced researchers as well from one another.
This year YCCI is expanding this concept to a larger community in an effort to broaden the experience and the population it serves. On March 9, we will be hosting an event for all Yale Scholars at the TAC Auditorium that is open to all trainees in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health.
The event will feature presentations, panel discussions relevant to clinical research, a poster session featuring the work of Yale Scholars and the following speakers:
- James Anderson, MD, PhD, Director of the NIH Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI), which plans and implements trans-NIH initiatives supported by the Common Fund and coordinates research related to AIDS, the behavioral and social sciences, women's health, and disease prevention.
- Richard Lifton, MD, PhD, Sterling Professor of Genetics and professor of medicine (nephrology), who will speak about the molecular genetics of common diseases.
- Victor Schuster, MD, chair of the department of medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, who will speak about career development in academic research.
We hope that opening our umbrella to include Scholars from across Yale's medical campus will encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and increased opportunities for clinical and translational research. Please visit click here for details about this event.
