Lasker Foundation and Alliance to Host Lasker Lessons in Leadership on August 4, 2015

The second Lasker Lessons in Leadership lecture, with keynote speaker Dr. Dan Littman and discussion panelists Dr. Alan Sher, Dr. Beverly Purnell, and Dr. Enrique Schisterman will take place on August 4th on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, Maryland. This lecture and panel discussion will focus upon providing experienced advice on how successful leaders communicate and publish their science.  Some of the questions to be covered will be knowing when to publish and when a story is complete, common mistakes made in writing papers, and why papers are most often rejected.  Writing is hard – come learn how to become a better writer and communicator of your science.

A series of one-day lectures, the Lasker Lessons in Leadership was developed by the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation in collaboration with the International Biomedical Research Alliance and the NIH Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Program to help postgraduate medical research students navigate their careers and develop critical leadership skills.  The Scholars Program has revolutionized the way in which the most talented students receive accelerated training on collaborative projects performed between laboratories in the US and EU.  Lasker Foundation President Claire Pomeroy, MD, MBA, said “The next generation of physicians and scientists is key to ensuring that biomedical research flourishes into the future.  In addition to scientific knowledge, these young researchers must have the leadership skills necessary to guide innovation and scientific discovery.  The Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation is pleased to partner to create the Lasker Lessons in Leadership program to address this need.”

WIRB-Copernicus Group (WCG), the world’s largest provider of regulatory and ethical review services and software to support clinical research, and Certara, the global biosimulation technology-enabled drug development consultancy, are co-sponsoring several of the lectures.
