Social Network for Translational Scientists Launched
Date:11/9/2009

for scientists at all career stages. After registering, users can post and respond to questions on career-related, academic, scientific, or social subjects; join virtual groups on specific topics or for specific organizations; read articles on navigating a career path; and pass along articles and hyperlinks from outside resources. CTSciNet users can join discussion groups on clinical trials, commercialization and entrepreneurship, ontology and bioinformatics, and many other subjects, and read articles on paying off graduate school debt, the academic tenure process, M.D.-Ph.D. dual-degree programs, and how basic scientists can work closer to the clinic. Other features will be added in the coming months and years.

CTSciNet’s partners are: the Association of American Medical Colleges; the American Federation for Medical Research; the American Physician Scientist Association; the American Society for Clinical Investigation; the Association for Clinical Research Training; the Burroughs Wellcome Fund; the Clinical Research Forum; the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation; the Health Research Alliance; the Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Science Translational Medicine; and the So
