Training across the MORU Network has been developed to enable higher education of international quality for scientists and clinicians from Asia. Training and education is in accordance with guidelines from relevant professional and registration bodies with a central aim to produce independent research scientists who are internationally competitive in developing and leading sustainable research programs. An important feature of our training program is that it must meet the needs of all of our research sites and training must be tailored to meet individual and local needs. 

We aim to:

  • Provide a coherent career development track for health researchers and collaborating partners across the MORU Network. 
  • Strengthen research capacity through supporting outstanding individuals and through developing networks with universities and research centres in Thailand and within the region.
  • Build local leadership capacity by supporting senior researchers to develop their training, teaching, strategic management and mentoring skills.
  • Increase public engagement with science in local communities. 

Professional and vocational training

High quality research depends critically on developing and sustaining the appropriate organisational, management and support structures. There are many and varied training needs that need to be addressed within each of the project areas. While some of the training needs individually address highly specific training needs of only one functional area, some training needs are applicable to a wide audience such as in the case of safety which has application to a wide number of clinical and research settings. These areas include statistics, genomics, safety and biosafety, bioethics, clinical project management, GLP and GCLP.
