Protocols and mentors
We ensure our fellows have a close working relationship with a faculty preceptor. The development of an acceptable research protocol is fundamental and, following review of the proposal at different levels, the investigation is initiated.
Through the successful construction of a protocol and execution of a project, you:
- Clarify your objectives
- Develop a plausible hypothesis
- Understand experimental design
- Become familiar with the theoretical and practical aspects of the methodology you employ
- Accumulate and analyze data accurately and effectively
- Describe results, providing an abstract for presentation at a national or an international meeting
- Deliver a well-organized presentation, including the effective use of audiovisual techniques
Later, it is expected that one or more manuscripts derived from this work will be accepted for publication by reputable peer-reviewed scientific journals. As part of the academic lecture series offered to all fellows, you learn how to write a paper.
These faculty members may serve as preceptors and mentors for fellows in the National Institutes of Health-Sponsored Track:
