Overview

Clinical and translational research training has never been more exciting or accessible than it is today at the University of Michigan. MICHR's Education & Mentoring team provides engaging and effective multidisciplinary education, career development, and mentoring programs aimed at increasing the number of high-quality clinical and translational researchers across a broad career continuum.


Vicki Ellingrod Named Program Director for MICHR's Education & Mentoring Group

The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research has named a new faculty lead for their Education & Mentoring Group (EMG). Vicki Ellingrod, PharmD, FCCP, has accepted the role of Program Director and will also serve on the MICHR Cabinet. Dr. Ellingrod is the John Gideon Searle Professor of Pharmacy and Associate Chair for Research Development and Mentorship, Department of Clinical, Social, and Administrative Sciences, College of Pharmacy, and Professor of Psychiatry, Medical School.

Dr. Ellingrod has actively served MICHR for a number of years, leading the mentoring initiative and the KL2 program over the last year. Vicki has served as a MICHR mentor for many scholars, and has been very active in shaping the direction of the education program at MICHR. As a recipient of one of the first MICHR Distinguished Mentor Awards, Vicki has been instrumental in promoting that award across the campus. Vicki will be instrumental to helping MICHR achieve its workforce development goals over the coming years.

Her research interests broadly focus on the pharmacogenomics of mental health treatments, and her research has been widely published.  She received her BS in Pharmacy and her PharmD from the University of Minnesota and is a core faculty member of the U-M Clinical Pharmacogenomics Lab.

Vicki succeeds Marilyn Lantz, who retired at the beginning of 2015, but continues to serve MICHR as a consultant to the EMG.
