Basic/Translational Science

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
