The epiCURE center offers many opportunities for hands-on training of young investigators from the local, regional, national and global members of the Research Community. In addition, epiCURE offers a diverse array of workshops for investigators at all career levels, particularly with two innovative new workshops on computational analysis and professional development.
epiCURE Investigators meet twice monthly to exchange fundamental details of their ongoing research programs and to foster better communication among the participants. These permit regular presentations of “in-progress” work by epiCURE members and periodic reviews of pertinent papers from the literature. These meetings include faculty and trainees, who will present their data on a regular basis. Presentations are formal, and faculty and other trainees are encouraged to participate with the trainee in an effort to improve both the research plan and the presentation style. Thus, these sessions will assist young investigators to prepare for presentations at scientific meetings. This activity also promotes collaboration within the epiCURE. In addition, P&F recipients will be invited to give annual presentation as part of the Work-in-Progress seminar series.
