The research opportunities include participation in ongoing clinical research in dialysis and transplantation. All fellows are required to participate in research and a publication is expected.
For those interested in academic research, a three-year fellowship is required.
Supervision of research training is provided by internationally recognized leaders in a variety of biomedical disciplines relevant to epithelial ion transports, including physiology, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, immunology and pathology.
Additional research opportunities and services for fellows include:
- Academic Research Services (ARS): This program, which is sponsored by the Department of Internal Medicine is designed to assist trainees with refining primary content of grants; helping with timelines, tables and graphics; providing unbiased outside reviews; bibliography generation; running basic statistics and help arranging for referral to a biostatistician; proofing grants, abstracts, manuscripts; helping with the grant review process; preparing IRB protocols, consents, etc.; preparing IACUC protocols; and compliance with LAMS, IBC, IND/IDE, etc.
- Certificate in Clinical & Translational Research: a 10 credit hour program designed to provide an introduction to clinical and translational research. Classes can be completed during an 8-week research block or in one academic year.
- Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training(CCTST): This collaborative effort among the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, UC Health and the Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center is a research resource and “academic home” for clinical and translational scientists and programs.
