Research Methods and Advanced Technologies in Biomedical Research

The biomedical grant funding situation is challenging these days. With every proposal that is submitted to NIH or any other agency, it is now becoming clear that a grant application with high innovation, cutting edge translational science and novel ideas is given preference over the regular applications where routine techniques are used. To prepare our young scientists for future challenges and to help our current post docs, research staff and faculty, we are excited to share the development of a new course entitled, "Research Methods and Advanced Technologies in Biomedical Research."  In this course, invited experts will share their expertise on new technologies and new developments from older technologies. This course will be directed by Dr. Robin Maser (Dept. of Clin. Lab. Sciences) and co-directed by Dr. Madhulika Sharma (Internal Medicine), both faculty members of the Jared Grantham Kidney Institute. The course will consist of a lecture every 3 months (3-4 lectures in a year).  Lectures may also include videos and/or hands-on demonstrations.  Each lecture will be 1-1.5 hours long.
