ITHS Announces 2016 Summer TL1 Clinical Research Trainees
The Institute of Translational Health Sciences has accepted 12 UW students into its summer TL1 Multidisciplinary Pre-doctoral Clinical Research Training Program.
The TL1 Summer Multidisciplinary Predoctoral Clinical Research Training Program is a three-month intensive learning experience for those interested in making a sizable impact on human health through research. The program brings a multidisciplinary cohort of early-career researchers together to accelerate discoveries through translational methods in projects ranging from mobile health apps to devices to drug development to epidemiologic studies.
The 12 students who were accepted represent five of the six UW health sciences schools as well as the College of Engineering. These students, their affiliation, and the proposed research projects to which they will devote their training are:
