2012 Clinical and Translational Research Workshop
The 2012 CTRW workshop will NOT be held this year and the Workshop Committee thanks all those who submitted applications. The workshop will resume again next year.
What are the goals of the workshop?
This is an intensive one-week workshop in design, statistical methods, and issues in clinical and translational research. The curriculum is designed to update the knowledge base for clinical research and grant writing. The workshop will also promote collaborative interactions between translational researchers, biostatisticians, and clinicians. Students will be expected to work on their own grant application throughout the week.
Who should attend?
This workshop is designed for junior/mid-level clinical researchers who have completed their doctoral (ie., MD, PhD) degrees and are working in translational medicine and seek to keep current with advances in clinical trial design and translational research.
What is the course design and what topics are covered?
The workshop will employ a variety of teaching methods, including didactic lectures, mentored collaborative grant-writing in small group sessions, oral presentations and discussion of the grants, and a mock NIH study section review. Didactic topics include issues in translational trials, biomarker studies, dose ranging and finding, middle development, ethics and scientific conduct, and adaptive designs. Steven Piantadosi, M.D, Ph.D and Christine Szekely, Ph.D will co-direct the course and faculty will include national experts in biostatistics, translational science, and clinical research from Cedars-Sinai and leading academic institutions.
