The Child Health Research Institute will host a Pediatric Academic Workshop with the theme “From Bench to Bedside to Bench” on Feb. 22, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Speakers will provide guidance on how to convert research ideas into reality; how to better connect clinical and bench science to impact patient care; and how to benefit from mentorship provided by senior investigators to develop your own career path. Panel discussions are scheduled on the topics of “Successful Collaboration Between Basic & Clinical Science” and “From Bench to Bedside to Market.”
To complement the Pediatric Academic Workshop, Chester Koh, Professor of Urology, Pediatrics and OB/GYN at Baylor College of Medicine and Balakrishna Haridas, Director of the BioInnovation Master’s of Engineering Program at Texas A&M University, will present on the Southwest National Pediatric Device Innovation Consortium (SWPDC). SWPDC is an entity that provides assistance to developers of pediatric medical devices in the form of seed funding, consulting assistance, engineering and design assistance and other services.
