FFASt is a new series of immersive-learning workshops designed to cover current issues in translational research. Learning opportunities are designed to shorten the formal didactic component of the training process without disrupting research productivity. This is a unique cluster of courses designed by the UCI ICTS to specifically support the education of the scholars and trainees. The FFASt program is designed to provide an immersive accelerated environment that addresses both fundamental and advanced topics in clinical translational science. The course topics will be flexible. FFASt courses will be offered once per quarter.
