The workshop i am attending is a Clinical Research Training workshop and it’s going to last 10days (2 – 13th August).

It’s being done by DR. Robert Bortolussi and DR. Noni MacDonald. Both are professionals in Clinical fields and have lots of experience in research.

The talks will be about how to do Clinical research. The main topics will be on “How to come up with a good Research Question“, “Principles of Clinical Research“, “How to write a report“, “What editors look for“, “Use of Web based Applications in Clinical Research“, “How a manuscript is reviewed“, “How a grant proposal is reviewed“, “Principles of Knowledge Translation“, “Moving Research into Policy”, “Effective utilization of time and resources”,  and “Community Engagement” among others.

So basically there is lots of stuff to learn during the next 2 weeks.

At the end of the workshop, we shall get a Certificate acknowledging our participation in the workshop.

We been been told to come up with research questions related to our backgrounds. These questions would then be presented to our our respective groups and each person in a group will be required to present their Research question.

The members of each group will then decide on which question to go forward with. So basically the member who has the best research question, will have their question chosen to research about.
After choosing the question, each group will work on the question chosen during the next 2 weeks and at the end of the workshop, each group will present a research proposal for the question chosen. The best proposal will win a grant

Personally, i am hoping to come up with a question in Biochemistry or Molecular Biology but it must be related to Clinical Research. There are lots of questions in my head right now and i don’t know which one to go forward with. But i hope i will figure that out soon because time is limited.

Hoping for the best.
