The MCCTR's Professional Development Core provides extensive training and resources to foster the growth of Mississippi's next generation of obesity investigators and to increase their number, diversity, and success. The Professional Development Core oversees five programs: the Investigator Development Program, Mentor Academy, Community Engaged Research Institute, Community Engaged Research Working Group, and a Seminar Series. These programs aim to create a rich intellectual environment, promote investigator interactions, and provide targeted research investments to increase research collaboration among CCTR investigators from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines, and to foster the development of young, obesity-focused investigators with sustained, independent extramural funding.
