The School of Medicine Office for Faculty is pleased to announce the 2021 LEADER participants.

The Leadership Development for Researchers (LEADER) Program is designed for junior faculty who are leading a research group and driving their own research agenda. The course provides insight into leadership and team building as well as direction on how to develop and manage a scientific laboratory or research program, how to improve productivity, and how to harness creativity and innovation. The program was developed to bridge the gap between the scientific expertise that led individuals to a career in academic medicine, and the management skills that will be required to succeed as the leaders of small business units. 

Faculty in this program were competitively selected to participate. Congratulations to the 2021 LEADER participants!
