The Emory University School of Medicine (SOM) is now taking its place among the nation's leading research-focused medical schools, thanks to a remarkable trajectory over the past 20 years. During this period, the SOM consistently has been one of the fastest growing research institutions in terms of marketshare, defined as the percentage of total National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards conferred to each of the nation's 131 M.D. granting accredited medical schools. source: SOM Research 2010-2014 Strategic Plan
The Office of Research Administration provides collaborative administrative systems and technical expertise to facilitate scholarship, research, and discovery within the Emory community from inception through dissemination and application.
The Clinical Research Boot Camp is a full day workshop designed to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the major components involved in clinical research. We currently offer a 101 and a 201 version which expands upon topics presented during the 101 bootcamp. Bootcamps take place annually in the spring.
Basic and clinical researchers from across Emory Medicine are paired up to discuss research topics in a series of short face-to-face meetings. Previous topics included child health, cardiovascular and neurology.
This new initiative from the Emory SOM Faculty Development Advisory Committee (FDAC) looks to pair junior faculty who want to publish with experienced faculty who can provide the needed guidance and mentoring.
We are currently seeking experienced faculty to serve as volunteer mentors for this program. Additional details and volunteer expectations can be found here. To volunteer as a mentor for this program please contact Karen Summers at Karen.Summers@emory.edu and include a copy of your curriculum vita so that we can match your experience to a potential mentee’s needs.
