Request for Applications for Internal Competition to Attend Eureka Institute Certificate Program
The Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is requesting applications for an internal competition to sponsor up to four faculty to attend the Eureka Institute 9th International Certificate Program in Translational Medicine, April 23-29 in Siracusa, Italy.
Attendees of the program will analyze the business, scientific and regulatory aspects of translational science; develop communication skills for presenting complex scientific ideas; and analyze effective manuscript preparation and begin to apply the concepts to their own work.
Miller School faculty who have participated in the past call it an exciting training opportunity in translational science. Here is what some of them had to say about their experience:
“It was a life-changing experience for me. I immediately started implementing some of the skills we learned, including team building and collaborations, and I began to focus on the potential impact of the research in relation to benefiting patients’ lives.”
- Lina Shehadeh, Ph.D., assistant professor of medicine in the Cardiovascular Division
“Eureka taught me how to be a better manager for my team. It was great to learn from folks who are at the top of their game!”
- Ashutosh Agarwal, Ph.D., assistant professor in the departments of Biomedical Engineering and Pathology
“The Eureka program helped me gain a clear vision of my career goals and a better understanding of the path I need to take as an academic scientist.”
- Jae K. Lee, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery
“Because I have been trained in both clinical and basic research, the Eureka program offered me a hands-on experience to really move my translational research program forward. Much of this was accomplished by networking with others at the Eureka course who had research programs that were distinct from mine but offered synergistic insight to promote the translation of my work.”
- Emmanuel Thomas, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of cell biology
