HHMI IMBS Curriculum

  1. Clinical Medicine-Basic Science Learning Groups, a core feature of the IMBS, whereby small groups of IMBS trainees, alumni and mentors will form new translational research teams.
  2. Integrating Medicine into Basic Science (CLH 250), a five-week IMBS summer institute to acculturate scholars to the clinical environment, integrate medical principles into their research, and highlight high-impact clinical studies.
  3. Congestive Heart Failure, Mechanism of Disease (CLH 230), designed to introduce the mechanisms of disease as related to cardiovascular health.
