NextGen Clinical Trial Investigator Training - Starting August 4
The NextGen Clinical Trial Investigator Training is a five-session educational program designed for faculty who are either involved in clinical trials or who would like to become involved.
We’ve all known someone, a friend, a co-worker, a loved one — someone affected by aggressive diseases like cancer and heart failure. Although we’ve made key strides toward crucial treatments, these relentless conditions continue to devastate lives here in Missouri and around the globe. It’s time to do more.
The NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series is a monthly seminar that provides learning opportunities for UM System faculty and staff across disciplines, the statewide community and our other partners. All are welcome to join the discussion to learn about the scope of precision health research and identify potential collaborative opportunities.
Precision health will develop interventions for individuals and populations to improve health outcomes. By basing medical approaches on individualized factors, such as genetics, environment and lifestyle — rather than using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach, precision health can improve diagnosis, treatment and patient care more than ever before.Research & Solutions
Mizzou, UMKC, Missouri S&T and UMSL each have unique research focuses and resources to contribute to the NextGen effort. We are investing in systemwide interconnectivity between researchers and clinicians at our four universities to build a network of precision health partnership that extends across the state and makes real impact on the nation and beyond.Our Universities
