NextGen unites exceptional faculty researchers across the UM System to join forces to help improve health care and quality-of-life in Missouri and beyond. Precision health work is not limited to laboratories. MU is home to public health, extension, business and journalism programs that will play important roles in advancing NextGen team science. The resources listed below are available to help faculty identify training and collaboration opportunities within NextGen. For additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Tracy Fuemmeler at email@example.com.
Education and training
The NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series provides learning opportunities for UM System faculty and staff across disciplines, the statewide community and our other partners to learn about the scope of precision health research and identify potential collaborative opportunities.
NextGen Science Seminars are monthly lectures focused on a myriad of research topics that showcase the latest research from across the UM System.
Clinical Trial Investigator Training
The NextGen Precision Health Clinical Trial Investigator Training is a five-session educational program designed for investigators who currently lead or would like to lead clinical trials. The series includes lectures and panel discussions from leaders across the University of Missouri System, as well as Washington University in St. Louis, to define the regulatory, operational and ethical components of clinical trials, with the goal of developing a skilled workforce that provides the highest level of patient safety, teamwork and data quality. The program also covers institution-specific resources for investigators. For more information on the launch of this training, contact Mary Hindle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty Insight is available for all UM System faculty to identify collaborators. Search the site by name or research topic.
MU Research Interest Groups (RIGS) are a grass-roots effort by MU faculty to connect research groups with specific funding opportunities and to develop large-scale, competitive research and proposals to submit to national funding agencies.
