Asia Pacific Research Accelerator (APRA) Visiting Scholars – February 2017February 01, 2017
The researchers from APRA partner hospitals in China will visit CERA in February 2017 for a three to six months visiting scholar program, which aims to foster researchers’ capacity in clinical research and strengthen the collaborative relationship between CERA and hospitals. Each scholar will be mentored, trained, and supervised by a Principal Investigator at CERA on two schemes: research investigation and research coordination. The hands-on training will include tutorials, engagement in CERA’s ongoing research projects, paper writing, clinical observation, as well as attending academic lectures and conferences. The APRA operations team is currently planning the program and preparing for the first intake of scholars in February 2017.
