Translational Tools I
This course will expand the participants translational toolbox, with a focus on cellular and animal models.
The course will cover:
- Research data management
- Introduction to and discussion of the use of cellular models, rodent models, and large animal models in translational research
- Translational research in the pharmaceutical industry: Excursion to pharmaceutical industry; best preclinical models
- Academic engagement: The participants will discuss the strength and weaknesses of the translational tools they apply in their own research.
BRIDGE - Translational Excellence Programme
Upon completing the course, participants should be able to:
- Discuss principles of research data management and data management plans.
- Explain suitability of different experimental model systems, and how they can be used in translational research.
- Determine current practices on how pharmaceutical industry use experimental model system in translational research.
- Prepare a draft of the participant’s research data management plan.
- Assess which model system would be optimal for their research.
- Prepare a research data management plan that complies with requirements by funding agencies and other stakeholders.
- Critically evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of different experimental model systems.
- Understand the central aspects of translational tools and be able to discuss and communicate these to other scientists, clinicians, and the public.
The teaching/learning methods comprise a combination of
lectures, group work/workshops, practical exercises and excursions
to pharmaceutical companies and animal facilities.
Lectures will be given by specialists in the field from both academia and the industry.
The course will end with an evaluation where participants must reflect on course learning outcomes and give feedback for course development.
Course literature will be published on Absalon.
Participants must meet the admission criteria in BRIDGE - Translational Excellence Programme.
The BRIDGE – Translational Excellence Programme offers a few selected graduated PhDs a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in translational medicine. The courses are only available to the fellows enrolled in the programme. Fellows are automatically enrolled in the courses upon admission to the programme.
