The College of Human Medicine’s Office of Research, along with MSU’s Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and Office of Regulatory Affairs are holding a two-day training on March 26 and 27 designed to support clinical research investigators. The Investigator Training Program will be held at MSU’s Secchia Center in Grand Rapids and is free of charge.

In partnership with Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, the training is tailored for lead investigators, study coordinators, research nurses and administrators, regulatory staff, as well as researchers and lab personnel involved in drug discovery and preclinical animal studies. Third- and fourth-year residents, along with post-doctoral candidates, who may be considering faculty positions are also encouraged to attend.

Geared for both the novice and seasoned investigator, the program will provide guidance on the planning, conducting and reporting of clinical studies and ways to improve the process. Participants can also share their experiences and offer practical advice to those who are new to the clinical research experience.

Registration is required for the event and space is limited. To reserve your spot, contact
