Prepare for your academic review

Dr. Natasha Martin is Co-Director of the SD CFAR BAM Core and a collaborating researcher on UC San Diego's Return to Learn initiative. In April and July of each year, Dr. Martin offers workshops to help emerging investigators prepare files for their academic reviews. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Martin is meeting with investigators individually via Zoom. Check for schedules and registration details here and in our weekly SD CFAR announcement email.
