2019 Annual Scholar Symposium
UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center Holds 15th Annual Scholar Symposium
Celebrating translational science research
May 21, 2019
Thirty-four scholars presented their translational science research over two days at the 15th annual CTSC Scholar Symposium. The event (May 12-13) celebrated the work of the graduating scholars and provided the opportunity to share their research with the faculty, staff and the clinical research graduate group.
The annual symposium convenes graduating scholars from several training programs sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and UC Davis School of Medicine:
- CTSC KL2 Program supports highly qualified early career faculty to conduct mentored, multidisciplinary, patient-oriented clinical research.
- CTSC TL1 Pre-Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Clinical Research Training Program aims to advance research education and training for multidisciplinary, clinical and translational investigators working to improve human health.
- Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology K12 Program trains basic translational scientists and clinician scientists in team-based patient-oriented cancer research.
- Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) K12 Training Program supports career development of junior Ph.D. and M.D. faculty researchers interested in women’s health.
- The Mentored Clinical Research Training Program provides support for clinical/patient-oriented research by junior faculty, clinical and pre-clinical fellows and post-doctoral scholars.
Presenting scholars answered questions and took respondent and audience feedback before receiving certificates of achievement.
About the CTSC Research Education and Career Development Program
The Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) provides a home for translational research support at UC Davis. With a team devoted to Research Education and Career Development (RECD), the CTSC manages, coordinates and administers training and career development programs for scientists involved in research that advances health.
Each of these training programs offers a highly engaging, interactive learning environment for scholars to network, leading to fruitful collaborations, peer mentoring relationships and research team science.
Scholars include researchers at various career stages including graduate, medical and veterinary students, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, and junior faculty.
