Apply Today: CHOP Translational Research Workshop for Basic Scientists

Modified: June 7, 2017

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute is pleased to announce that the call for applications is now open for its third Translational Research Workshop for Basic Scientists. This program, taking place on October 11-13, 2017, is an intensive learning experience designed to introduce early career researchers to the principles and fundamental elements of translational research. By employing a combination of didactic presentations, lectures, and clinical experiences, this workshop aims to bridge the gap that exists between bench research and the clinic.

Instructors and lecturers will include top researchers from the Philadelphia area and beyond, who will draw their discussions from their own personal experiences and lessons learned. Participants who complete the program in its entirety will receive a certificate of participation.

Learn more about the 2017 CHOP Translational Research Workshop, and sign up to receive agenda updates as it is developed.

To be eligible for enrollment, candidates must be early-career researchers enrolled at or employed by a research institution. The ideal candidate will also meet the following criteria:

  • Pre-doctoral students (Ph.D. students in their fourth year or later of scholarly training)
  • Postdoctoral fellows
  • Early-career scientists (scientists within 5 years of the receipt of their doctoral degree)

The goal of this program is to provide basic or wet bench scientists with the information they need to successfully transition their research programs to the clinic. However, trainees and early-career scientists from other backgrounds (e.g., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. scientists) may also be eligible. These individuals should contact postdocinfo@email.chop.edu to inquire about eligibility prior to applying.

Travel Awards
Travel awards, sponsored by Alexion Pharmaceuticals, are available for outstanding candidates. These awards will cover up to $1,000.00 of qualifying expenses for a limited number of participants not local to the Philadelphia area.

How to Apply
Enrollment in the CHOP Translational Research Workshop is competitive. Your application will require a CV, statement of interest, and recommendation letter. More information and application instructions can be found at https://ctrw.research.chop.edu/how-to-apply.

The application deadline is June 23, 2017 at 12:00pm (ET).
