The Career Development Core is led by Dr. M. Christine McGahan
The mission of the Career Development Core is to support faculty, particularly early stage investigators and under-represented minority investigators, to enable them to reach their goals of achieving and maintaining excellence in environmental health science research. The Career Development Core focused on early stage and under-represented minority faculty investigators. This Core will produce a career development plan that provides the support required to ensure that CHHE members compete successfully for external funding with emphasis on early stage investigators and under-represented minority faculty investigators and fosters ongoing refinement of skills. The Career Development Core is coordinated with a robust Pilot Project Program that will foster early stage investigators and also serve as a mechanism to recruit new early stage faculty scientists to environmental health science (EHS) research.
The Specific Aims of the CHHE Career Development Core are:
Aim 1 To promote career development/training of early stage investigators.
Aim 2 To support training and career development of women and under-represented minorities.
Aim 3 To develop and support scientific enrichment activities.
