  • Interdisciplinary team science—how to get and to keep M.D.s and Ph.D.s working together
  • Importance of epidemiology, statistics and informatics to clinical and translational research
  • Regulatory and ethical concerns for human studies


Throughout the course, participants will be encouraged to design a pilot clinical and translational project using a team-based approach. All projects will be critiqued by participating faculty. This course is open to M.D. and Ph.D. postdoctoral scholars in all disciplines.
