EVENTS
 
1. Fun Fridays- Circle of Fifths in Music

Friday, January 28, 2022, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Zoom

Sponsored by the Center for Faculty Development’s Office for Well-Being

Fun Fridays offer a refreshing mid-day break from work to indulge in physical, mental, or creative activity.

Do you want to know what's beneath major and minor keys in music, a.k.a. tonality? For example, why does a G major have one sharp in the key signature? We will talk about the logic of tonal harmony, the circle of fifths, and listen to great music to see how composers unfold their creativity.

Joo Park, PhD, is a composer and pianist. She seeks to write music that explores the dual nature of existence: simple and complex, obsessive and impulsive, serious and humorous, and tonal and atonal. She wants to create music that combines fascinating musical traditions, such as tonality and counterpoint, with her approach to timbre, chords, fast-changing meters, and texture. She intends to create music that is positive and easy to listen to, and yet intellectual.

5. Interpreting and Presenting Results- Qualitative and Mixed Methods

Wednesday, February 2, 2022, 10:00 – 11:00 am, Virtual

Sponsored by the MGH Division of Clinical Research and the Mongan Institute

Speaker: Vanessa Merker, PhD 

This one session course will assist clinical researchers in interpreting and presenting qualitative research data that they have coded using NVivo, other software, or by hand. We will address how to utilize the data to identify themes and overarching ideas, connections between themes, and ways in which themes may vary by attributes of individual interviewees, focus groups or other units of analysis. We also will address strategies for effectively reporting qualitative research results in presentations and manuscripts, and for integrating qualitative and quantitative research results in the context of mixed methods studies.

6. Clinical Studies & Registries: Methods to Increase Subject Retention and Data Quality, And Publish Results Faster

Wednesday, February 2, 2022, 12:00 – 1:00 pm, Zoom

Presenter: John Putzke, PhD, MSPH, StudyTRAX

Participants will learn methods to:  

  • Engage subjects in a portal using incentives, secure communication, and delivery of personally relevant information.
  • Visualize outcomes and automate decision logic to incentivize timely and accurate data entry.
  • Publish results more efficiently by connecting data capture and the analytical process into a single, integrated system. 

The presentation will examine ways to engage and retain subjects in the clinical research process by using a web-based, data entry portal that provides subjects with incentives, secure messaging, and personally relevant information based on their own data.  It will also demonstrate how to more efficiently bridge the gap between "raw" study data and the end-result manuscript by connecting analytical, editing, and text formatting tools directly within the data collection system.
This presentation is intended for clinical researchers, statisticians, and study coordinators involved in clinical trials, observational studies, surveys or patient registries.  Attendees will learn about functionality in a data capture system called Studytrax and view various case examples.

7. Charles A. King Trust – Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Established in 1936, the Charles A. King Trust was created to “support and promote the investigation of human disease and the alleviation of human suffering through improved treatment.” In keeping with these principles, the King Trust today supports postdoctoral fellows in the basic sciences and clinical and health services research through the Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

The primary goal of the Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is to support research that focuses on the causes of human disease with the mission of improving its treatment. To meet this goal the Program provides vital support to prepare postdoctoral fellows for academic careers as successful independent investigators in biomedical research.

The King Basic Science Award Program supports scientists in the mid to late stages of their postdoctoral research training in basic science research. Basic Science research funded by this program has contributed to knowledge that has significantly impacted biomedical advances and contributed to the subsequent development of an impressive host of therapeutic interventions spanning the entire range of human disease categories. Please note, clinical research proposals involving human studies are not allowed and should be directed towards the King Trust Clinical and Health Services Research Fellowship Program. For questions regarding basic versus clinical research, please visit: www.hria.org/tmf/KingBasic and refer to the Frequently Asked Questions document.

AWARD PERIOD
October 1, 2022 – September 30, 2024

AWARD AMOUNT
Two-year grants currently range from $111,520 to $130,072 total, inclusive of a $2,000 annual expense allowance.
