2023 Translational Research Trainee Symposium

On November 2, 2023, the Utah CTSI Workforce Development Programs hosted the Annual Translational Research Trainee Symposium. This full-day event brought together students, staff, and faculty from across the CTSI and University of Utah Health Campus. Representative programs included the Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) Program, Mentored Career Development K12 Scholar Program, Spheres of Translational Across the Research Spectrum (STARS) T32 Program, MD-PhD Program, and Vice President’s Clinical and Translational (VPCAT) Research Scholars Program. Among the activities scheduled were platform presentations delivered by invited trainees from each CTSI-associated program, a Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, poster sessions, and a lecture on the transition from K to R awards presented by Dr. Anna R. Docherty from the Department of Psychiatry in the Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine. Attendees were also treated to a keynote address from Dr. Carrie Byington, the inaugural CTSI PI whose leadership, expertise in infectious diseases, and dedication to advancing healthcare practices have made her an influential figure in the medical and translational research community.
