The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, in collaboration with the Clinical and Translational Science Award One Health Alliance (COHA), has announced its inaugural class of Translational Research Fellows for 2020. These veterinary clinicians will obtain two years of research training related to their clinical specialty, supported by interdisciplinary mentor teams.
The initiative is supported by a CTSA Innovation Award housed at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine. The five-year, $3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health will further bolster efforts to bring physicians and veterinarians together in support of human and animal health. The grant will also help support the development of graduate veterinarians into skilled clinician-scientists and address gaps in knowledge of human and animal diseases. Read more.
