TL1 Translational Research Training Program

Posted: 10/24/2017 (Employment)

The ITHS TL1 Program is a one-year mentored research training program in translational science for predoctoral students. This program creates a cross-disciplinary community of emerging researchers and provides them with specific training, career development opportunities, and team science skills to help them function effectively within translational science teams. Up to sixteen (16) Trainees will be selected for the TL1 Program.


The TL1 Program is open to students enrolled in predoctoral programs within the University of Washington. These include Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Social Work, as well as health-related programs in the College of Engineering and College of Arts and Sciences.

To be considered eligible for the TL1 Program, applicants must be:

  • Pre-doctoral trainees training at a post-baccalaureate level and enrolled in a program leading to a PhD in a health science research-related doctoral degree program, or a combined doctoral level professional degree plus a clinical research-related advanced degree (such as a MD, DDS, DO, DNP, PharmD/MS or MD, DDS, DO, DNP, PharmD/PhD). Students who wish to postpone their professional studies for one year to gain research experience may be appointed to the TL1 Program for that period, provided that all other eligibility criteria are met.
  • A U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, with verification documents (individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible).
  • Able to commit full-time effort in the program at the time of appointment.

Applicants must not:

  • Conduct research outside of the United States during their appointment period.
  • Accept salary support from other Public Health Service-funded grants during their appointment period.
