Strategies and resources necessary to build a research agenda were presented along with the important steps in the research process. Misconceptions and challenges about scientific research were explained, but at the same time the joy and satisfaction derived from doing a research project was also emphasized. Types of research with corresponding examples that can  be done in clinical practice were given. Dr. Laya's overall message was to present research as an important tool in enhancing clinical practice and to inspire the listeners to embark on a research-oriented culture.
