New 2020 TL1 Program Cohort Joins ITHS

ITHS is very pleased to welcome 16 new trainees to its TL1 Translational Research Training Program for the 2020-2021 cohort. The ITHS TL1 program is a one-year mentored research training program in translational science for predoctoral students. This program creates a cross-disciplinary community of emerging researchers and provides them with specific training, career development opportunities, and team science skills to help them function effectively within translational science teams.

We look forward to supporting these trainees while they grow and develop as translational researchers.
