The Radiology Mentoring series is a collaborative effort of J Keith Smith, MD, PhD; Ari Isaacson, MD; and Weili Lin, PhD, to promote research among both clinical and Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) faculty.  Our mission is to strengthen research and promote collaboration among Radiology clinical and basic science faculty by providing mentorship and training opportunities, as well as to aid radiology faculty in the responsible conduct of clinical and translational research in a manner that is ethical and consistent with relevant laws, regulations, policies, and procedures.

This series includes bi-monthly sessions covering various UNC School of Medicine research topics. In addition, we also showcase the work of our own faculty by asking our own faculty members to present their research.  Topics covered during past and future talks include:

  • Introduction to conducting Health Services Research
  • Clinical Trials Quality Assurance and Billing
  • Updates from the IRB
  • Conflicts of Interest in Research Studies
  • Introduction to Research for Early Investigators
  • Designing a Research Study
  • Developing a Research Protocol
  • Clinical Trial Contracts and Budgets
  • Obtaining an IND or IDE from the FDA
  • Updates in EPIC for Research at UNC
  • Conducting Research Involving Animals

ONYEN-protected sessions

  • Standardized CV Format
