The Translational Research Scholars Program (TRSP) is a faculty career-development program that provides promising early stage investigators from the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) region with a high-quality, targeted and structured career development package for one year.
The package includes research funding up to $10,000, mentoring, peer-to- peer feedback and expert review services.
The Translational Research Scholars Program seeks to:
The cohort will be 10 awardees representing a diversity of translational and clinical research within the WWAMI region.
TRSP Scholars are highly promising early stage investigators from the WWAMI region who are conducting translational research. Applicants must be PI-eligible as designated by their institution.
The TRSP Program provides support up to $10,000 in research funds for one year. Please review the NIH guidelines for allowable costs.
Schools/departments/divisions will be required to provide 10-20% release time for their selected scholars. Non-UW institutions are responsible for indirect costs.
TRSP support is contingent upon continual scholar progress and compliance with ITHS directives, as well as continued support from the NCATS grant that funds the TL1 Program
Scholars are expected to:
All materials, including the Letters of Recommendation, must be received by 11:59 p.m. on October 30, 2017.

Yes. The translational science spectrum represents each stage of research along the path from the biological basis of health and disease to interventions that improve the health of individuals and the public. It includes basic, pre-clinical, clinical, clinical implementation and public health research. Learn more about translational science.
No. Applicants must have a faculty appointment at UW or ITHS partner institutions in the WWAMI region.
The program is one year starting March 1, 2018 and ending February 28, 2019.
We hope to select up to 10 scholars.
ITHS will support up to $10,000 in research funds for one year.

In addition, the school/department/division agrees to provide 10-20% release time for their selected scholars. (This must be stated in the letter of support.)
Yes. The program does support research outside the United States and investigators with a focus on global health. Investigators conducting research outside the USA are still expected to meet the participation requirements.
NIH considers the sharing of unique research resources developed through NIH-sponsored research an important means to enhance the value and further the advancement of research. When resources have been developed with NIH funds and the associated research findings published or provided to NIH, it is important that the results be made readily available for research purposes to qualified individuals within the scientific community.
