Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology 2020

The Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology (FLARE) program is for basic science, clinical research trainees, and junior faculty from underrepresented minority communities who have demonstrated achievement in endocrine research. FLARE program components provide structured leadership development and in-depth, hands-on training in topics ranging from grantsmanship to lab management.

Presented by the Endocrine Society's Committee on Diversity and Inclusion and Trainee and Career Development Core Committee.

FLARE Components

  • The FLARE Workshop two-day training teaches the “business of research” and the skills trainees and junior faculty need to establish themselves as independent researchers. The 2019 Workshop will be held February 6-8, 2020 in Austin, TX.
  • In the FLARE Internship Path, trainees and junior faculty serve on Society governance committees or they participate in the Keystone Symposia Fellows Program.
  • The FLARE Mentorship Path, connects underrepresented minority trainees and junior faculty to accomplished biomedical and clinical scientists online and in-person. The FLARE ENDO Abstract Award supports trainees’ and junior faculty as they present at the Society’s Annual Meeting & Expo (ENDO).

This activity is supported by an educational grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

Target Audience

This activity should be of substantial interest to advanced graduate students, clinical fellows, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty from underrepresented minority groups engaged in endocrine related research.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this education activity, learners will be able to:

  • Employ new knowledge and practical management skills critical to a successful career in biomedical research.
  • Build effective relationships with peers and faculty that support strategic collaboration, leadership development, and career advancement.
