TEAM Core Requirements

Tissue Engineering Trainee Requirements

Monthly trainee dinner/meetings.
The objective of the monthly dinners is for trainees to present their research to each other in an informal setting, without faculty present. Dinner will be provided while the seminars will be given by two of the trainees.  (All trainees will give at least one informal seminar while supported by the grant.) Plan for a TEAM dinner on the 2nd Monday of each month.  Fall schedule has us located in Dentistry Room G580, 5:00PM. Dates:  *September 10, October 8, November 12, December 10, January 14, February 11, March 11, April 8, May 13. (*September 10 will be the TEAM orientation given by Dr. David Kohn. Trainees will sign up for a presentation date.)

TEAM Seminars
The TEAM Program Sponsors 4 seminars per year as part of the Oral Health Sciences Seminar and Journal Club Series. All trainees are required to attend the seminar series sponsored by the training grant and recommended to attend the additional seminar/journal clubs during the Fall and Winter terms.  The Journal Clubs are held on Tuesdays, from Noon-1:00 pm (Dentistry 7th floor FAL) and the seminars are on Thursdays, from Noon-1:00pm (Dentistry G-550).

Tissue Engineering BIOMEDE 584
This graduate-level course has been reinstituted and is held winter term every other year (next offered Winter 2014.)  Those pursuing degrees must register. Postdoctoral Fellows must arrange with instructor to audit the course. Trainees who have completed this course or an equivalent are excused from participating.

Responsible Conduct in Research (RCRS)
All trainees are required to participate a RCRS course. The School of Dentistry offers their RCRS course as part of the OHS Seminar/Journal Club program (the RCRS dates will be identified on the schedule). If you have completed the RCRS through your Programs (PIBs 503) or the College of Engineering program, please bring documentation to the TEAM Office.

Other Events
All trainees will participate in a bi-yearly Symposium on Tissue Engineering and Regeneration. The Symposium will be a day-long event and consist of several external and internal speakers representing both basic science and clinical areas, and a trainee poster session. The External Committee will meet with Training Grant participants and create a report on the program.  Mentors are expected to attend this symposium as well.
   - Biennial Symposium/Retreat will be scheduled for 2014
   - Career Development Workshops-Grant Writing, Chalk Talks, etc. Will be announced
