Tinsley R. Harrison Research Program

The Tinsley R. Harrison Translational Research Training Program was established in 2006 to provide residents  with the opportunity for initial research training thus encouraging translational research as a career path. Participants receive instruction and practical experience in basic and patient-centered investigation in a mentored environment away from the demands of patient care and other clinical obligations. Consistent with the NIH Roadmap, the program provides formal research experience, training in fundamental techniques in a wide range of disciplines, and interaction with clinical trials, while overcoming traditional barriers that hinder basic sciences application to clinically relevant questions. Residents who have participated in the program have been very productive in their research endeavors, yielding presentations at regional and national meetings and peer-reviewed manuscripts. The Harrison scholars participate in the Department’s annual Resident and Fellow Research Day, held every spring, which features approximately 40 graduate housestaff presenting  posters
