The CHOP Translational Research Workshop (CTRW) for Basic Scientists is designed to introduce early career researchers to the principles and fundamental elements of translational research. By employing a combination of didactic presentations, lectures, and clinical experiences, the CTRW aims to bridge the gap that exists between bench research and the clinic.
Course participants can expect to be engaged in:
- Panel presentations
- Small group discussions
- Observational visits, including patient clinics
- An IRB session
- In-classroom patient visits/discussions
- Tours of translational and clinical research facilities and diagnostic labs
- Networking opportunities
The next workshop will be held on September 28 - October 2, 2015.
The call for applications will open on May 4, 2015.
About the CHOP Translational Research Workshop Experience
The CTRW is a five day, intensive learning experience. Each day will last approximately 8 hours, with the exception of a half-day session on Friday. Breakfast, lunch and end-of-the-day refreshments will be provided.
Instructors and lecturers will include top researchers from the Philadelphia area and beyond, who will draw their discussions from their own personal experiences and lessons learned. The limited class size is intended to promote an interactive and open environment for all participants.
CTRW participants who complete the program in its entirety will receive a certificate of participation.
Enrollment in this program is a competitive process.
