CARRA is offering an exciting opportunity for up to 3 CARRA Early Investigators to receive sponsorship to attend the 2020 Utrecht Summer School translational research course, “Translational Medicine: Doing the Right Research Right”, in Utrecht from July 12-17, 2020.
This course, run by faculty of Utrecht University and the Eureka Institute, tackles the intrinsic difficulties of effective translational medicine in rare and orphan diseases and is meant for early stage researchers with an interest in this field. A full course description can be found on the Utrecht Summer School program website here. This course is open to young or early faculty from a wide range of disciplines. Fellows with established translational research interests will also be considered for this opportunity.

In addition to the research course, CARRA, PReS and UCAN-CANDU have agreed to support Early/ Young Investigators to meet for an extra day (Saturday, July 18) to work on personal development plans and brainstorm ideas for collaborative research projects guided by Eureka Institute faculty and CARRA, PRES and UCAN-CANDU senior clinician scientists. Projects arising from this activity will receive priority consideration for a 2021 joint CARRA-PReS RFA that will support the development of projects from cross-organizational collaborative groups.
The sponsorship will cover the course tuition (which includes housing and lunches), round trip coach airfare, and $550 for incidental expenses.
