Summer Course: ‘Introduction to Basic Research’

The School of Medicine’s Department of Medicine is pleased to offer its 16th annual summer course titled “Introduction to Basic Research” in August 2018.

The course is designed for fellows, residents, postdocs, technicians, students, and clinicians who would like to include basic research in their studies, as well as clinicians who would like to explore the applications of basic science methodologies in clinical research. The goal of this course is to provide an overview of the research techniques and expertise available on campus and the core scientific resources available to our scientists at UMB.

Lectures will deal with the background behind various molecular techniques, statistical applications and data analysis, balancing effort vs. impact when beginning new research projects, research portfolio building, use of experimental animals, concepts of experimental design and experimental models.

The course will be held for two weeks — Aug. 13 to Aug. 24 —  with classes held from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

The deadline for registration is Aug. 8. Registration, which covers the cost of all class materials, is $25. Checks should be written to the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
