EAST Short Course #2 Surgical Research Boot Camp: From Idea to Publication, Funding, and Beyond

Presented by the EAST Research-Scholarship Committee and the EAST Multicenter Trials Committee

Course Description: Making the leap from unfunded, mentored-led research as a resident, fellow, or junior faculty to a funded investigator requires a significant investment (in personal development, creation of preliminary research, and time). For many, especially those at institutions without mature research labs, this transition is often the single most significant barrier to independent funding. This session will focus on the time between unfunded, mentor-driven research and the first independent funding application. Specifically, identifying mentors, finding seed money to support research, and creating preliminary evidence to make their proposals more attractive. This course will provide an overview of early steps to becoming an independently funded investigator.

Moderators: Rachael Callcut, MD, MSPH & John Harvin, MD, MS
