"It’s a really an exciting time to witness and be part of this large initiative at Michigan Medicine to redesign the clinical trials enterprise with a long-term goal of overhauling the entire clinical research enterprise of our institution. It is particularly exciting for the Department of Internal Medicine as a major stakeholder in this effort. We have the most faculty involved in shaping the future of this project at all stages." -Dr. Rodica Pop-Busui
One of the Department of Internal Medicine's main goals is to become much more effective in linking our successful trialists with our basic researchers and to bring to trial those molecules and pathways that are being identified by our talented colleagues working on the bench. Another important mission is to expand access of clinical research space into clinical care settings, as well as to organize and provide effective, hands-on training in clinical trials for junior faculty to develop the next generation of successful clinician investigators.
