Califf to present Translational Research seminar

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

The Office of Postdoctoral Services presents "Translational Research" with Robert Califf, MD, vice chancellor for clinical research and director of the Duke Translational Medicine Institute on Weds Oct 13, 1:30-2:30 pm in 103 Bryan Research Building.

Medicine fellows are encouraged to attend. Register here.

A critical goal of biomedical research is to transform discoveries into preventions, treatments, and cures. By working together, basic scientists, clinical researchers, and engineers are removing barriers to research, training new generations of clinical and laboratory research teams, and providing equipment and resources needed to catalyze translation across the continuum of scientific discovery, clinical research, care delivery, and global health.

Join your colleagues for a lively discussion with examples of drug development failures and translational successes. Learn about opportunities for postdocs to participate in translational research.
