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

Harvard Catalyst is one of 64 CTSAs across the U.S. funded by NCATS. All CTSAs share common goals in training and supporting the next generation of clinical and translational researchers.

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.

This event is hosted by Harvard Catalyst and co-sponsored by Boston University Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Clinical and Translational Science.
