The American Medical Student Research Journal

Medical students created The American Medical Student Research Journal to help future physician-scientists develop critical thinking skills to succeed in academia and clinical practice. Medical students, working under the guidance of faculty mentors, author, review, and edit the journal. Articles must have a medical student as the primary author and meet the journal’s standards of excellence in research. The publication has several sections, and most QI articles are published in the humanities section.

Cancer trends reported in NCI publications are calcuated using the Joinpoint Regression Program to analyze rates calcuated by the SEER*Stat software.

 

BU Clinical & Translational Science Institute

The BU CTSI is a center of expertise providing tools, services, and resources to clinical investigators, maximizing the impact of discoveries and speeding the translation of research into improved patient care.

 

BU Medical Campus Clinical Research Resources Office

The mission of the BU CRRO is to facilitate the design and conduct of ethical and scientifically valid clinical research by providing a range of services, resources, and guidance to support BUMC clinical researchers in planning, submitting, conducting, and analyzing their research.

 

Mentored Training for Dissemination & Implementation Research in Cancer

MT-DIRC is training program for cancer control researchers who are seeking to gain better training in the field of dissemination and implementations science research. Cancer is the leading cause of death among persons under the age 85 and the second leading cause of death overall in the United States. To address this cancer burden, university-based research yields a growing supply of new discoveries, but research findings often take 10-20 years before being incorporated into practice. To address this gap, the science of d&I research has emerged.
