Congratulations to Eleonora (Nora) Lad, MD, PhD for being selected for the 2017 Leadership Development for Researchers (LEADER) 3-day workshop. The program is designed for junior faculty who are leading a research group and driving their own research agenda. The LEADER 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. LEADER will be held April 18-20, 2017.
