In this issue of The TRIbune, we feature the achievements of researchers who participated in our Strategies for Training and Advancing underrepresented Researchers (STARs) program in fall 2021. Participants described the program as “invaluable” and “fantastic” and have since secured career development awards, supplemental grants and internal funding. In addition:
We highlight Britni Ayers, Ph.D., a former TRI KL2 scholar, who received a $420,750 NIH grant for her research involving pregnant Marshallese women.
We introduce the four community groups selected to TRI’s Community Partners Educated as Arkansas Research Leaders (CPEARL) Program.
And our TRI Study of the Month features Kyle Kalkwarf, M.D., a TRI Implementation Science Scholars Program awardee, for his leadership on a clinical trial involving traumatic brain injury patients.
