Goal 4: Develop Workforce and Resources

Translational training programs

The strategic vision to enhance translation and to enhance the workforce both require training that spans the scope of basic science, pre-clinical development, clinical trials. We lack coherent mechanisms for training the next generation of translational researchers, some of whom may be MDs, and some PhDs. A program should provide cross-training of Clinical Fellows and Postdocs to reflect the needed interactions between the clinic and the lab, with a certain amount of cross-training. Close mentorship by translational scientists, MDs, PhDs, MD/PhDs, and by industry, regulatory and legal professionals involved.
