TL1 Training

In 2015, the Translational Research Institute (TRI) established the Health Sciences Innovation and Entrepreneurship (HSIE) Training Program, which aims to help the next generation of health scientists transform their discoveries into benefits for health care. TRI hopes to significantly augment the HSIE Program with a National Research Service Award (NRSA TL1), which is being sought as part of TRI’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) application to the National Institutes of Health National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS).

Through its HSIE program, TRI and UAMS BioVentures partnered in 2015 to co-sponsor the HSIE Seminar Series. These monthly seminars, which extend to May 10, 2016, feature a range of local and national experts with critical insights into the commercialization of intellectual property. The seminars are listed on this website’s calendar.
