Deborah Mack PhD Student Selected for TL1 Pre-Doctoral Fellowship

Deborah Mack, MPH, PhD student was selected by the Center for Clinical and Translational Science NIH-funded TL1 training grant.  Dr. Kate Lapane and Dr. Silvia Corvera are the PIs of the training grant.  The TL1 engages pre- / post-doctoral fellows in training across the entire translational spectrum (T0: bench science, T1: translation to humans, proof of concept, phase 1 trials; T2: translation to patients: phase 2 and 3 trials; T3: diffusion to clinical practice, Phase 4, outcomes; and T4: population-based outcomes research) to participate in a common clinical and translational science program on the UMass Medical School campus. The TL1 program seeks to: 1) Train and nurture highly qualified pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees through the provision of  a novel, multifaceted, rigorous TL1 program in clinical and translational research; 2) Provide trainees with strong mentoring teams, rigorous academic training tailored to their research interests, and technical skills necessary to ensure success as independent investigators and contributors to team science; and 3) Provide “hands on” research experience within transdisciplinary teams building on the strengths of current linkages between UMass Departments, Centers, and Institutes
