The challenges and complexity of the 21st century society necessitate a scientifically-informed US policy, economy, and global
competitiveness. To accomplish this we need:
- Top scientists conducting research and disseminating findings broadly and teaching science;
- Science embedded in leadership in all sectors, government, education, nonprofit, and business; and,
- A scientific-literate public.
A broad range of career options are available to trained PhD scientists to support such a strong science society. The speaker will
discuss her personal career journey as a scientist in the pharmaceutical, academic, and publishing sectors and will share insight
about how all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows can plan for a successful career in science..
Lunch will be provided for attendees who preregister by December 12, 2013.

Mentored Clinical Research Training Program (MCRTP) Call for Applications
Deadline: February 28, 2014, 5pm
The Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) is pleased to announce the annual call for applications for the Mentored Clinical Research Training Program (MCRTP). The MCRTP is part of a fully integrated approach by the UC Davis CTSC to advance human health by providing education and training to junior investigators to become competent in conducting multidisciplinary, clinical and translational research.
The MCRTP is a two year program designed to provide a solid foundation in conducting clinical/translational research for junior investigators working to improve human health. Candidates will simultaneously apply to the UC Davis Clinical Research (GCLR) Graduate Group to pursue a Master of Advanced Study (M.A.S.) in Clinical Research degree while participating in the MCRTP. The next class of MCRTP scholars will begin in July 2014 with a 7-week summer program followed by two years of continuing coursework and mentored research, ending in June 2016. Selected scholars will need a 70% time commitment to complete the MCRTP and the requirements for the Clinical Research masters degree.

Responsible Conduct of Research
The UC Davis Research Compliance and Integrity Unit is once again offering a comprehensive research ethics program for graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, staff and NSF funded undergraduate students. This program may also be used to satisfy NIH (http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-10-019.html) and NSF (http://www.nsf.gov/bfa/dias/policy/rcr.jsp) training grant requirements for responsible and ethical conduct of research training programs.
The 60 minute lecture-discussion sessions will be offered at both the Davis and Sacramento campuses. Sessions will consist of a lecture by a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. Participants must attend a minimum of eight sessions in order to meet the federal requirements and to receive a certificate of completion for the Responsible Conduct of Research program.
The Davis and Sacramento Schedule of RCR Sessions are attached as well as on the RCI Webpage (http://www.research.ucdavis.edu/rcr).
