Clinical Research Resources Panel
On July 10th, 110 students, residents, faculty, and staff of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai gathered for a panel presentation in Davis Auditorium on "Careers in Clinical & Translational Research: Opportunities, Skillset and Challenges." The event was sponsored by the Office of Academic Development and Enrichment, the Center for Patient Oriented Research, Training, Education and Development (CePORTED), and the Office of Research Services.
The session was designed to provide an interactive forum to help attendees gain insight into the experiences and lessons learned by junior faculty as well as more seasoned clinical and translational researchers during the course of their career development. Panel members ranged across a wide variety of disciplines, and included Jeffrey Glassberg, MD, MA; Peter S. Heeger, MD; John Mascarenhas, MD; Stuart Scott, PhD, FACMG; Cardinale Smith, MD; and Rosalind Wright, MD.
