are now being accepted from students enrolled in a doctoral program in the
Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences for the Translational Science Training
(TST) TL1 Program.
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.
eligible to apply to the TST TL1 program:
Are enrolled in a
doctoral program at UTHSCSA;
Are U.S. citizens or
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.
selected as Translational Science Training Scholars, will work with
their Supervising Professor and the TST TL1 Directors to develop individualized
programs that will facilitate their capacity to move their science into human
or community studies. These individualized programs to include core coursework
in translational science and a clinical practicum in the scholar’s field of
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.
TST TL1 Program is an institutional National Research Service award (NRSA) that is 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) as well as 60 percent of the cost of tuition and fees.
see the TST TL1 website (http://iims.uthscsa.edu/ed_tst_tl1_prog_description.html)
for program and application information. There, you will find menus for
application guidelines and application forms. Please make sure any form you use
is for the current program, “Translational Science Training TL1 Program.”
