4. The February TEDxMGH release is a celebration of Black History Month

The success of the TEDxMGH videos began over a year ago with a special inaugural speaker, Dr. O'Neil Britton. He led the way for many other leaders to speak up and share their personal stories with the MGH community. This month, the Center for Faculty Development would like to honor these three distinguished speakers who reflect on the life lessons they have found to be the most meaningful in their growth and understanding of self and others. Whether or not you have listened to their stories before, please click below and join us in celebrating these wonderful speakers! 

  • November 2020 (first release!)- Putting the Most Meaningful Things First:    O'Neil Britton, MD, Mass General Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, talks about his life and experiences while trying to focus on always putting the most meaningful things first.

10. 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.
