Request for Applications: Eureka Virtual School



October 26-30, 2020


CARRA traditionally offers an opportunity for CARRA Early Investigators to receive sponsorship to attend the Utrecht/Eureka Summer School translational research course. In these unusual times, the translational research course for 2020 has been transitioned into a fully online program focusing on COVID-19 (see below for the course description). In place of travel grants, CARRA is offering an opportunity for up to 5 CARRA Early Investigators to receive entrance into the online course. Applicants must submit their information via the online form below.

Course Topic

Translational Medicine: Essential skills for impactful research during COVID-19 and beyond

This EUREKA Virtual School tackles the intrinsic difficulties of effective translational medicine. It is designed for early-stage researchers interested in this field.

COVID-19 has given the world one of its most significant challenges. Translational scientists play a crucial role in tackling these challenges, from developing and implementing diagnostic tests to treatments and vaccines and health policy.

This course will show you that addressing health care challenges (such as COVID-19) requires much more than deep scientific knowledge. Being an agent of change also requires an understanding of scientific and health systems and a complement of skills, including collaboration, critical thinking, reflection, creative problem solving and communication. The course aims to inspire, train and challenge you to become part of a new generation of translational scientists needed to identify and tackle the most urgent problems in medicine.
