About

For over 10 years, the Harvard Catalyst Postgraduate Education program has provided training and support to thousands of early-career researchers from more than 250 institutions, including Harvard University's schools and affiliate academic healthcare centers. We have designed more than two dozen courses on topics ranging from fundamentals of clinical and translational research, to leadership skills and mentoring.

Over the years, it’s  become increasingly clear that skillful science communication promotes successful careers in clinical and translational research, and that clear and engaged communication propels research further and faster, moving us that much closer to improved human health.

This has prompted us to launch a Writing and Communication Center, which empowers clinical and translational investigators, in every stage of their careers to better articulate their science. We provide researchers with carefully curated and organized content from our robust collection of existing courses and resources. In the future, the center will grow to include new content such as additional self-paced online learning modules, peer editing groups, and consultation services. The resources that we envision developing in the future will be based on feedback we receive from our users. We look forward to developing new content, and encourage you to check the website for future updates.

Harvard Catalyst

Harvard Catalyst, founded in 2008, is a shared enterprise of Harvard University, devoted to advancing human health by supporting clinical and translational science, and training the next generation of researchers. We are funded by the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) through its Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program, grant number UL1TR002541. As part of a collaborative network of more than 57 centers across the U.S. funded by NCATS, our mission is to catalyze innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing, and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.
