ITHS Announces 2017 Cohort of TL1 Pre-Doctoral Trainees

2017 TL1 Cohort

ITHS Announces 2017 Cohort of TL1 Pre-Doctoral Trainees

Training in translational research provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in a cross-disciplinary community while learning core research methodologies. In order to provide this opportunity at the University of Washington, the Institute of Translational Health Sciences offers the mentored year-long TL1 Translational Research Training Program, which includes experiential learning, network opportunities, project funding, stipend, and tuition support.

The ITHS is proud to announce the 2017 cohort of awardees. This year, 20 students were selected from across all six health science schools and the College of Engineering. Through a mix of didactic and experiential learning, trainees will broaden their knowledge of translational research methods, participate in immersive experiences within other disciplines, and complete collaborative projects. According to the TL1 Co-Director Joie Whitney, “the upcoming program is expanding content and interactive sessions that will help trainees to understand and gain skills required for successful interprofessional/team science collaborations.”
