Translational Research is a collaborative activity and students are encouraged to work together to identify medical needs and plan high impact projects that help generate solutions for patients.  Although projects are intended to be collaborative so that we can tackle ‘Big Problems’ together, individual contributions and roles must be clearly defined.  In special cases, with the approval of the Program Committee, some students may work on individual projects where issues of resources, IP, funding or an established research trajectory do not allow for collaboration within the class.
