The goal of the Basic Science/Translational Research Scholarly Concentration is to provide residents with the opportunity to gain experience and expertise in a basic science area of interest. Residents in this Scholarly Concentration have the opportunity to:
- Learn advanced science methodology in disciplines such as microbiology, immunology, oncology and cardiology
- Learn how to design and implement well-designed basic science studies
- Explore how basic science findings may be translated into clinical trials
The Stanford University School of Medicine supports a number of shared research facilities housing specialized scientific instruments and services. These include 23 scientific Service Centers, which are open to all researchers in the University at predetermined fees, and a number of Cores, which house equipment shared among a group of labs. Here is a link to core facilities within Stanford: http://corefacilities.stanford.edu
