Seeking research labs to host public health 194 students

The UC Irvine Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS) and Program in Public Health are proud to announce the second year of the undergraduate course series, Public Health 194 - Clinical and Translational Research Preparatory.  Students in this second cohort are currently completing the first of the three courses in the series, PH-194A.  Through PH-194A students learn about a number of topics relevant to translational science (The National Institutes of Health’s Roadmap, including the translational science initiative, Bench to Bedside to Population Research, Community Engagement, Cultural Competence, and Ethical Principles in Research and Human Subjects Research) through a series of lectures and interactive discussions led by members of the ICTS Steering Committee, UCI Institutional Review Board, and faculty in School of Medicine and Program in Public Health.

For PH-194B, we are now seeking research groups willing to host highly motivated students for two 5-week rotations in their research lab during the upcoming Winter Quarter.   Each lab would have 2 students rotate in their lab for the first rotation ( Jan  6 – Feb 7, 2014), and 2 different students for the second rotation (Feb 10 -March 14, 2014).  Each student will commit 6 hours per week to the lab during each rotation.

Shadowing experiences can take place in the clinical, laboratory or community setting. Prior to rotations, students will have completed/submitted the following:  CITI Training, HIPAA certification, Environmental Health and Safety Training, Immunizations, Proof of Health Insurance, Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Indemnity Agreement and Confidentiality Agreement Form.

The benefit to investigators is that you will be able to invite some of the students you have hosted to continue working in your lab for the Spring Quarter and possibly for multiple subsequent quarters.  Only at this later stage will students need to be added to the IRB protocol that they are conducting research on.  


If you are interested in participating or have any questions regarding the program please contact Micaela Martinez at micaelam@uci.edu or (949) 824-4433.
