Faculty Career Development Series

Career Development Series

The ITHS Career Development Series consist of monthly lectures and workshops designed to provide early stage investigators with tools, a forum for discussion, and learning opportunities to help advance their careers.

Topics

Topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment.

Example topics include:

  • How to Write an NIH K Award
  • Making the Most of your Mentor Relationship
  • Mastering Public Speaking as a Researcher
  • Communicating your Findings Visually
  • What really happens in an NIH Study Review

Where can I find a CDS event?

ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.

Upcoming and Past Events

Feb
20
Wed
Bringing Therapeutics, Medical Devices, and Diagnostics to Market @ UW Health Sciences Building, Room K-069
Feb 20 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Description

Research discoveries can lead to new products and services that significantly impact treatments available to patients with critical illnesses. Once a discovery is made, more in-depth exploration of its potential and possible risks must be assessed. Bringing these types of products forward and getting them in the market, so they are available to physicians and patients is a long, complicated, and expensive process. Why is this? Learn what is involved in the commercialization process and hear about some real-world examples of successes and failures.
