Dartmouth SYNERGY Scholars prepares young clinical scientists for success in today’s highly competitive research environment.
Geisel medical students Lye-Yeng Wong ’18 and Freddy Vazquez ’18 will each be spending one year conducting research in their areas of interest, compliments of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, respectively.
Led by Alan I. Green, MD, a team of scientists at Dartmouth SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Science Institute and Geisel’s department of Biomedical Data Science are helping to lead a national effort to centralize IRB (institutional review board) review for clinical research among the NIH’s 64 CTSA research centers.
Two innovative new products designed to improve patient care are being developed by Richard Barth, Jr., MD, and William Hudenko, PhD, through the SYNERGY Clinician-Entrepreneur Fellowship (S-CEF) program. Headed by Aaron Kaplan, MD, the S-CEF seeks to cultivate entrepreneurial skills among clinical faculty at the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock.
Dartmouth SYNERGY, the Dartmouth Clinical and Translational Science Institute, is helping junior biomedical researchers take their research findings and leverage them into new treatments for patients through a huge range of research tools and clinical research support.
