MICHR has a program designed for doctoral students in basic research programs as a complement to their graduate studies. The Translational Research Education Certificate (TREC) provides students with an overview of the principles of translational research and will help prepare them to become the next generation of translational researchers performing bench to bedside investigations in multidisciplinary, collaborative research settings.
Students enroll in specialized courses in translational research, gain the expertise of a co-mentor who is a clinical/translational researcher, and can take advantage of an optional clinical or health outcomes shadowing experience. Students seeking admission to the program are required to have the approval of their PhD mentor.. The certificate is awarded by the Rackham School of Graduate Studies with faculty lead Donna Shewach, PhD.
The application deadline is July 22. More details are available here.
