Can Your Basic Research Contribute to Cures? Translational Research for Ph.D.s

Sunday, February 20, 2011: 11:00 AM-12:30 PM
144B (Washington Convention Center )
Most PhD scientists work with systems and phenomena far removed from patients and human diseases. Yet basic science is essential to the pursuit of medical advances. The deep and wide divide between lab and clinic can make it hard for basic scientists to know when a scientific insight or discovery is medically relevant, and how to do something about it. Co-organized by FASEB and Science Careers, this workshop will focus on ways to bridge that deep divide, allowing basic scientists to contribute to curing diseases and alleviating human suffering. The audience will hear from and interact with an expert panel of established and early-career scientists whose research bridges that divide, so-called translational research.
