Dr. Szyld, director of research, is an invaluable resource to the fellows in all areas of scholarly activity. From the formation of a research question, to the writing of a manuscript and every step in between, he provides mentorship from start to finish. Additionally, he acts as a member of each fellows’ scholarly oversight committee. He regularly meets with the fellows for research didactics to build a strong knowledge base on the ethics of research, grant writing, project design and management. Finally, he holds an quarterly writing conference for fellows and faculty to facilitate the writing of their manuscripts.
