Between the Keck Center and our many Research Consortia, the GCC has many opportunities and resources for junior faculty members. We offer many chances to meet future collaborators, have many shared resources for our member institutions, and strive to provide information on how to position yourself for future training grants. We also encourage interinstitutional and cross-disciplinary collaborations, and are always looking for new opportunities between our members and institutions, so we encourage you to reach out even if your research does not “exactly” fall into one of our current areas of research. For more information, contact Suzanne Tomlinson.

Five units, covering communication, resilience, inclusivity, conflict and feedback, and trainee wellbeing, will help PIs and staff support your biomedical trainees. Each unit will explore ways to manage common challenges in research groups by means of a webinar (real-time or recorded) and facilitated small groups designed to build a community to improve training across the US.
