The overall mission of the Translational Workforce Development function is to develop new knowledge and novel approaches that will measurably address the complex health challenges of rural and underrepresented populations. Achieving this goal requires a highly knowledgeable and motivated workforce that embraces diversity and is armed with the knowledge, skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to remove barriers to better health.
Through our Translational Workforce Development Program, Train-To-Translate (T2T), TRI works to establish new and expand existing interdisciplinary and career-spanning training opportunities in translational research. Our goal is to attract outstanding students and faculty members to clinical and translational research careers and provide them the guidance and tools required to be successful, independent investigators.
Our T2T workforce includes faculty and staff at all career stages whose research spans the T1-T4 spectrum and who partner with local communities, entrepreneurs, and government agencies. Our broad training platform includes experiential, online, mentored, and personalized learning opportunities.
