The Accelerating Excellence In Translational Science (AXIS)Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science

The Research Education and Training function facilitates junior faculty research development employing individualized curriculum evolved through data collected at yearly, one-on-one assessments and interviews. We recommend and refer access to classes, lectures and programs, and other training and educational resources in science and research. We detail and implement productive mentoring programs for CDU faculty, wherein emerging scientific investigators are counseled, motivated, and coached through their career development process by qualified, senior faculty. We also promote high quality scientific projects and proposals by facilitating and sponsoring internal and external peer reviews by highly qualified and respected researchers. We work with researchers to improve the quality of NIH and other grant submissions.
