We designed the Professional Skills Training Program to teach practical, professional skills needed for biomedical research. This includes grant writing (how to plan and write research, career development, and fellowship applications); sharing research findings (writing abstracts and manuscripts, and giving scientific presentations); plus important skills such as leadership, mentoring and creativity. We will provide new topics as needed - contact us with your ideas.
