Applicants Sought for the
Translational Science Training (TST) TL1 Program
Application Due Date: March 13, 2017
Anticipated Start Date: July 1, 2017
Applications are being accepted from students enrolled in a doctoral program in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences for the Translational Science Training (TST) TL1 Program.
The TST TL1 Program provides inter-disciplinary graduate training in Translational Science for students interested in learning how to move their basic research findings more effectively and efficiently into clinical or community research.
Students eligible to apply to the TST TL1 program:
- Are enrolled in a doctoral program at UTHSCSA;
- Are U.S. citizens or permanent residents;
- Have successfully completed their Qualifying Exam (may be pending at application submission);
- Have selected a research Supervising Professor; and
- Can apply the concepts of translational science to their research project.
Awardees, selected as Translational Science Training Scholars, will work with their Supervising Professor and the TST TL1 Director to develop individualized programs that will facilitate their capacity to move their science into human or community studies. These individualized programs will include core coursework in translational science and a practicum in the scholar’s field of interest. Scholars will gain a firsthand appreciation of the relationship of basic science research within the translational science continuum. Additionally, TST Scholars will gain important skills required to work with interdisciplinary teams in the conduct of translational investigations.
The TST TL1 Program is made possible through a grant from the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NIH/NCATS). TST awards will include an annual stipend at the NIH-specified level (for FY 2016, $23,376), plus other support.
