Howard University launches pilot collaboration with NIH intramural research program

Howard University, one of the five member institutions that comprise the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS), has recently launched the NIH-Howard University Intramural Research Collaboration (NIH-HUIRC). This partnership with the National Institute of Health (NIH) Intramural Research Program will provide Howard students and junior faculty with opportunities to enhance their research investigator skills through mentorships, training, and multidisciplinary collaborations.

The mission of the NIH-HUIRC resonates with the founding principles of GHUCCTS, particularly the promotion of collaboration among scientific investigators as well as the implementation of innovative educational training programs. GHUCCTS, which offers complementary opportunities through its TL1, KL2, and pilot translational science programs, sees this as an opportunity to provide increased resources to emerging investigators. GHUCCTS leadership plans to develop synergies between NIH-HUIRC and the GHUCCTS training programs that will offer junior faculty and students a broader range of programs, mentors, and services.
