Postdoctoral Skills Development

The Postdoctoral Skills Workshop, co-hosted by Preventive Medicine and the Center for Translational Metabolism and Health, was a training initiative of the American Heart Association's Strategically Focused Disparities in CVD Research Network awarded to the Center in 2015.

The workshop was designed to serve as an introduction to academic research and provided didactics on topics such as team science, delivering effective scientific presentations and successful grant writing. Experienced faculty also outlined and direct young investigators to helpful resources provided by the university.
