  • Responsible Conduct of Research credit (some seminars).
  • A chance to ask questions about topics of concern to you, such as:

    • What should I do about this conflict with my mentor?

Elliot Voss Newman was a distinguished cardiologist, scientist, medical scholar and teacher. A graduate of Harvard College and Medical School, he came to Vanderbilt from Johns Hopkins in 1952 to start a program of clinical physiology and research.

At one point, he was the author of the electrocardiography chapter in Harrisons’ Textbook of Medicine and of the renal physiology chapter in Cecil and Loeb’s textbook. He was a pioneer in the development of medical engineering and the use of applied mathematics and computer science for clinical problems.

Dr. Newman was the first Joe and Morris Werthan Professor of Experimental Medicine at Vanderbilt and was founder of the Clinical Research Center, which bears his name. He was a friend and mentor to medical students and house officers alike and helped to promote many scientific careers.

Testimonials
This talk was extremely practical, helpful, and inspiring. It was refreshing to hear about challenges faced and encouraging to see the persistence required in the pursuit of grant funding. I thought it was wonderful and we need more example success stories like this.

~ Newman Seminar Participant

I appreciate that you included both basic science labs and clinical research set ups because they had overlapping and important information but also information unique to those situations that was helpful to hear

~ Newman Seminar Participant

Fantastic seminar! Really helped put things into perspective for me.
