Fourth Annual Clinical Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Regional Shared Mentoring Symposium

Harvard Catalyst is one of more than 50 CTSAs across the U.S. funded by NCATS. All CTSAs share common goals in training and assisting the next generation of clinical and translational researchers.

In an effort to support these goals, the four Massachusetts-based CTSA institutions rotate hosting this shared event each fall. In 2018, the symposium is hosted by University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science and co-sponsored by Harvard Catalyst, Boston University CTSI, and Tufts CTSI.

This half-day symposium is geared towards fellows and junior faculty who are in the early stages of their careers and are interested in exploring mentorship and career development. The event will feature two panel sessions: one on career development strategies and a second on career opportunities in clinical and translational research. In addition to the panel sessions, participants will individually meet with senior faculty members from local CTSA institutions to discuss personal scenarios on career development.

This is an excellent opportunity to network with peers from local CTSA institutions and receive career development advice.
