TRAINING IN BRAIN TUMOR RESEARCH SEMINARS
The Brain Tumor Program offers excellent training in brain tumor research by opening its doors to national and international scientist at various levels of their education. Our laboratories enjoy the intellectual inputs of Graduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, and Summer Students (High school and Pre-Graduate Students).
As part of this training, and besides the opportunities that MDACC is offering to research trainees, the Brain Tumor Program specifically established an educational course named Training in Brain Tumor Research. This is a two-year course offered in a weekly basis to all trainees in the Brain Tumor Program and encompasses two components:
1. Top lectures in brain tumors from experts in fundamentals and hot topics areas in brain tumors, such as clinical aspects, neurodevelopment, and neuropsychology. These lectures are informative and encouraging our trainees to keep moving towards our common goal.
2. Presentations from the trainees’ current project or published data. These seminars are conductive to the development of outstanding communication skills and establishment of networking. Trainees receive pre-presentation and some constructive criticisms during their seminars. This platform has been used, per instance, to present the Caroline Ross endorsed awards and to rehearse Ph.D. thesis defenses.
The Training in Brain Tumor Program has an average audience of more than 50 people from different areas of research, such as Neuro-Oncology, Neurosurgery, Pathology, Radiation Oncology, Pediatrics, Melanoma, and Neuropsychology.
