The Department of Medicine is pleased to offer its annual summer course "Introduction to Basic Research" in August 2014.

The course is designed for fellows, residents, post-docs, technicians, students and clinicians who would like to include basic research in their studies, as well as clinicians who would like to explore the applications of basic science methodologies in clinical research.
