ITHS Announces First Cohort of Translational Research Scholars
Biomedical researchers are struggling these days to fuel scientific pursuits. Cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget are squeezing many investigators, particularly those early in their careers. Other endowments and funding sources are turning away large numbers of highly-qualified applicants.
These mounting challenges persuaded the University of Washington’s Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) to launch a program to help promising, early-stage investigators to put their best foot forward in applying for dollars that remain on the table.
