The Translational Health Research Institute of Virginia (THRIV) program has announced a new call for proposals for mentored career development awards for junior faculty at UVA who are pursuing a career in clinical or translational research.
THRIV is a transformational cross-Grounds collaboration that leverages the latest advances in data science to accelerate innovation in health-related research and facilitate team science. THRIV seeks to support highly qualified junior faculty for activities related to the development of a successful clinical research or translational research career.
The first group of scholars came from three different schools across Grounds — the School of Nursing, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the School of Medicine — and I am excited see that applications are now open for the next group of promising scientists.
The THRIV Scholar Career Development Program aims to train the next generation of translational researchers in principles of data science, the conduct of rigorous and reproducible science, and to promote team science as a means to enhance innovation and discovery in health-related research. The program provides up to 75% salary/fringe support for up to 2 years for Scholars in addition to funding for research-related expenses and training.
