Biomedical & Life Sciences

  • The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection
    Over 2,500 specially commissioned, online, multi-media lectures, presented by world leading experts, including Nobel, Lasker and Breakthrough prize winners.
    Available to WU students, faculty, and staff through the WUSTL license.



Clinical and Translational Science

Conducting Clinical Research


  • American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) 
    The ASCP provides an online program titled Training Residents in Genomics(TRIG). With NIH providing approximately $1.3 million in funding over five years, this grant has allowed the TRIG Working Group to create workshops and courses to further assist residency programs in educating their trainees in genomic pathology. Materials can be obtained free of charge with registration.


  • Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Compact
    The Compact Between Postdoctoral Appointees and Their Mentors is intended to initiate discussions at the local and national levels about the postdoctoral appointee-mentor relationship and the commitments necessary for a high quality postdoctoral training experience. The Compact was drafted by the AAMC Group on Graduate Research, Education, and Training (GREAT) and its Postdoctorate Committee, and it is modeled on the AAMC Compact Between Resident Physicians and Their Teachers.
  • University of Madison Curriculum
    This website provides resources to improve research mentoring relationships, including curricula, assessment tools and resources relevant for mentors and mentees, as well as those who would like to implement mentor training.

Patient Centered Outcomes Research

  • Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) 
    PCORI’s continuing medical education/continuing education (CME/CE) activities are designed to provide accredited professional education for clinicians in areas pertinent to patient-centered outcomes research and clinical knowledge. Any member of the healthcare community may access the activities at no cost.

Public Health

  • American Public Health Association (APHA)
    Webinars available on public health topics such as: health equity, environmental impacts on public health, health care reform, the impact of racism on health, safe guarding communities from harmful chemicals.

Rigor & Reproducibility

  • NIH Videos
    NIH developed four video modules with accompanying discussion materials that focus on integral components of reproducibility and rigor in the research endeavor, such as bias, blinding, and exclusion criteria. These modules are intended only to stimulate conversation, which may be facilitated by the use of the discussion materials, and are not meant to be comprehensive training modules. They may serve as a foundation upon which to build further education, training, and discussion.

Team Science

  • Northwestern University
    Solutions to complex problems in the sciences require teams of specialists from diverse backgrounds working across the boundaries of disciplinary silos. These online learning modules are grounded in empirical research and theory about the Science of Team Science (SciTS), and the experts interviewed are well-published in that domain. The four modules are intended to help researchers acquire and apply a basic knowledge of Team Science.
