Career Development

C-REP will encourage you to define and pursue your career goals by first creating an initial individual development plan using a web-based career-planning tool tailored to meet the need of your scientist. As a working document, your mentor will guide you as you work toward your career goals.

Scientific Writing Workshops

We have partnered with Axiom Scientific Communication to provide trainees with a scientific writing professional development workshop series.

The ability to effectively communicate your ideas in writing is a critical component to scientific success. Graduate level C-REP trainees can take advantage of interactive scientific writing workshops. In these workshops, trainees will identify and evaluate key components of effective scientific writing. Trainees will analyze their writing to enhance clarity in communicating your own scientific ideas.

Specific workshops will focus on writing NIH F- and K- fellowships. You will learn to design a personalized grant writing timeline, learn about overall grant organization and NIH grant-scoring criteria in order to increase your chances of being awarded a fellowship.

New Course: Emerging Technologies in Cancer Drug Discovery and Development

A new course for graduate students will be introduced entitled "Emerging technologies in cancer drug discovery and development." The course will be offered to students at UH, Baylor College of Medicine and other institutions within Texas Medical Center and taught by instructor from the various institutions.

Once the course is open for registration, it will be announced here!
