The Professional Development for Research Personnel seminar offers research coordinators, project leaders and other health research professionals an opportunity to develop and refine the skills they need to efficiently coordinate and manage clinical research studies.

This year’s seminar is comprised of three sessions:

  • How to Effectively Engage the Principal Investigator – I Know, It’s Embarrassing That We Have to Talk About This, presented by Jim White, M.D., Ph.D., professor of Pharmacology & Physiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. How can you, as a member of the research staff, help to coordinate the PI’s time and assist the PI in fully engaging in your research trial? White will share his own experiences and lead an interactive discussion with the attendees to share what has and has not worked.   
  • Project and Time Management, presented by Maria A. Marconi, Ed.D., R.N., C.N.E., assistant professor of Clinical Nursing, and specialty director of the Health Care Organization and Management Master’s Program and the Master’s Program in Nursing Education at the University of Rochester School of Nursing. Effective research coordinators and project leaders have the ability to manage multiple projects, operate at a high level of organization with attention to detail, and develop and use infrastructure and systems that support intra-professional collaboration. This presentation will provide practical and comprehensive guidance on a variety of project management skills useful to the health research professional.
  • Clinical Trials – A New Technology Age, Christopher G. Tarolli, M.D., senior instructor of Neurology. Many studies are incorporating technology in the design and activities of trials. Learn what is currently being used and what the future holds for research coordination.

In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in one of several mini sessions to learn how to use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and bring calm into their lives.

The seminar will take place at the University of Rochester School of Nursing in the Helen Wood Hall Auditorium. Sign-in will begin at 7:45 am (light breakfast fare will be available) and the program will conclude at 12:30 pm.  There is no charge for this event.
