NTP is proud to announce the recipients of the 2023 UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) TL1 Predoctoral Training Program, our two NTP students: Janet Lee (Year 1) and West Roberts (Year 2). Congratulations to Janet and West!

The UW ICTR Predoctoral TL1 Training Award is an NIH-supported educational program with a goal to train future clinical and translational leaders and to expose all UW health-care professionals and engineering students to the scientific foundation of this discipline. This training program builds on strong clinical and translational training programs that already exist in the School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Nursing, School of Pharmacy, College of Engineering, and School of Veterinary Medicine. The award provides support for 2-year mentored research training program in translational science for predoctoral students.
