Request for Applications: 2022-2023 TL1 Translational Biomedical Science Program

Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) is now accepting a letter of interest form for its predoctoral student and postdoctoral fellow training program in Translational Biomedical Science (TBS Program). Interest Form DUE April 1, 2022; Final application is DUE June 1, 2022. The TBS Program is supported by the NIH TL1 award mechanism and accordingly, follows the same eligibility requirements, stipend structure, and NIH restrictions of Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards (NRSA) including F30, F31, F32, and T32 mechanisms.

The goal of the GHUCCTS TBS program is to prepare predoctoral students (PhDs & dual MD-PhDs) and postdoctoral fellows (MDs & PhDs) to become the next generation of leaders in the translation of basic science into improved outcomes for health, aging, and disease. Trainees are taught how to build and lead transdisciplinary collaborative research programs through engaging in dual mentored training experiences in preclinical and clinical research. Students and fellows receive didactic education in human health and disease that takes advantage of existing courses, seminars, and workshops through GHUCCTS-sponsored activities and training programs including the master’s program in Clinical and Translational Science. TBS Scholars are also trained in: human subject research methodology & bioethics; grant writing & peer-review; community engagement & team science; negotiation & networking; as well as other career enhancement skills that are tailored to the TBS Scholar’s Individualized Career Development Plan.

The TBS Program capitalizes and expands upon the GHUCCTS established track record in cross-institutional training and research and leverages the rich partnerships that GHUCCTS has established among Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC), Howard University College of Medicine (HUCM), MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI), the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center (DC VAMC) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The TBS Program provides rich opportunities to study several of the greater Washington, DC area pressing medical problems since GHUCCTS institutions play key roles in multiple aspects of human health in this diverse and predominantly disadvantaged population.

The TBS Program complements existing PhD programs at GU and HU. Students and postdocs interested in complementing their discipline-specific training with supplemental training in translational biomedical science are encouraged to apply.

Applications which propose inter- or multi-disciplinary and collaborative research projects, within the T1-T4 translational research continuum will be considered. We anticipate funding 4 predoctoral students and 4 postdoctoral fellow applications in this cycle. For further details regarding the TL1, visit our website.
