AnnMarie Walton, Hyeoneui Kim and Qing Yang were recently selected to participate in the 2018 Duke course of Leadership Development for Researchers (LEADER). They will be among 40 outstanding scientists from fields in 13 different School of Medicine departments, the School of Nursing, the Pratt School of Engineering and Duke-NUS in Singapore.
The interactive three day workshop is designed for junior faculty who are leading a research group. It will provide insight into leadership and team building as well as direction on how to develop and manage a scientific laboratory or research program, how to improve productivity, and how to harness creativity and innovation. It will also provide tools to use in navigating conflict with confidence. This course provides a unique opportunity to work with a diverse and multidisciplinary group of faculty and to network with other researchers from across the university.
The 2018 LEADER program will be held April 17-19 at the Hamner Conference Center in RTP.
