The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is providing $46 million in funding to UT Health San Antonio to move scientific discoveries into practice. A key focus will be reducing health disparities among Mexican Americans, active military personnel and veterans. Click here to read the full article.
Thank you to all who helped make this achievement possible!
The Translational Science Training (TST) Program is pleased to announce that we have received funding for the T32 Award; 1 for Predoctoral Trainees (Award Number T32TR004545) and 1 for Postdoctoral Trainees (Award Number T32TR004544).
We would like to thank the mentors, Dr. Linda McManus, Julie Barker, Ms. Susan Stappenback, Mrs. Giovanna D’Ambra, the CTSA Team including Karen Schulz, Monica Palomo, Courtney Peebles, and Dr. Robert Clark for the support during the application process. We are excited to work with the incoming T32 Trainees! Program Directors: Dr. Yong-Hee Patricia Chun and Dr. Chris Frei Program Coordinator: Marlene Valenzuela

Apply now for the 2023 Implementation Science Workshop Workshop opportunity from UT Health Houston Institute for Implementation Science.
During the workshop, implementation science experts provide focused support as participants develop their research proposals.
This is a wonderful chance to access renowned experts, as well as connect with local IIMS resources through the Texas Implementation Science (Tex-IS) Research Network and the Dissemination and Implementation Science Core (https://reach.uthscsa.edu/services/di/).
Mays Cancer Center & Texas A&M University Joint Request for Applications LOI: 9/18/23, FULL APP: 11/24/23
The Mays Cancer Center at UT Health San Antonio and Texas A&M University Health are soliciting proposals for joint pilot projects resulting from collaborations between investigators at the two institutions. The primary goal of these programs is to support early-stage collaborative studies that will lead to increased interdisciplinary, institutional, and community-based research likely to compete successfully for extramural NCI-recognized peer-reviewed grant support and ultimately to improve human health. The programs are supported by the Mays Cancer Center and TAMU Health institutional funds.
Advancing Dissemination and Implementation Science Working Group Equity-focused Dissemination & Implementation Sciences in Clinical Research, Clinical Practice, and Communities
This WG will leverage the capacities of CTSA and PBRN models through equity-focused lens and Dissemination & Implementation Sciences to build effective Learning Healthcare Systems, enhancing the impact of clinical translational science and advancing D&I across the translational science spectrum and across the hubs.
The current goals are to: 1. Advance critical links between research and practice communities 2. Expand critical links between D&I and clinical research
Work is accomplished through subgroups formed around a particular project, such as a survey of PBRNs in CTSAs, expansion of an online resource to locate D&I training programs and connecting D&I with learning health systems.
