Robert Lavker talking to students


Center director Amy S. Paller, MD, and associate director Robert M. Lavker, PhD, both have decades of mentorship experience. Their dedication to trainee (and junior faculty) education and enrichment will continue throughout the center's grant period. Junior members will be encouraged to take courses offered by NUCATS (CTSA) (e.g., good mentoring, grant writing and statistics). Additionally, each core director will be generous with time in counseling about research directions and specific techniques.

Teaching Videos
