"Because of the Translational Research Scholars Program, I reached out to someone I didn’t know particularly well, but whose science really overlapped well with mine. This interaction helped me improve the science and think broadly about treatment and clinical implications for my work.”
- Dr. Sara Kover, UW Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences
"The pilot data acquired during the Translational Research Scholars Program will help establish feasibility and provide preliminary data to support a larger NIH-funded study. The funding from ITHS has been crucial in getting some of this pilot data.”
- Dr. Sujata Pradhan, UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine
"The funding I got through the Translational Research Scholars Program helped me to do some experiments in my lab. But, more importantly, the actual programs I was partaking in, the monthly conference calls, onsite visits, career development aspects, and other things helped me put together a strong R21 application.”
- Dr. Kirk Hevener, Idaho State University
