Translational Workforce Development
The Translational Workforce Development program of the CCTST is designed to enhance the clinical research skills, mentorship, and productivity of current Academic Health Center (AHC) clinical and translational investigators while developing new, and expanding existing, pipelines of future clinical and translational researchers. In addition, the program strives to enhance community awareness, interest, understanding, and involvement in clinical and translational research, and to advance the science of its teaching. The program is led by Patrick Ryan, PhD, MS.
