Our fellows' research experiences are diverse and flexible.
Our fellows’ research experiences are diverse and flexible, ranging from laboratory to informatics to population health services to various types of traditional clinical research/trials. Fellows are able to design their own research projects and are often involved in multiple projects spanning a variety of interests, methodologies and settings. All fellows undergo rigorous training to develop their research skills and academic interests. Fellows are mentored to design, obtain support for and carry out their own studies. Fellows also often direct the research efforts of others. Research groups within the division and department offer significant investigative opportunities. The division also has a tissue bank of surgical specimens collected for research use. Fellows are encouraged to define and pursue their individual research interests among the opportunities and resources available at the institution and among our collaborators.
Currently between the three fellows they have six published manuscripts, three manuscripts in process; ten oral presentaitons; ten poster presentations; and three grants two of which were funded by NIH and OCRA.
