The Miami CTSI has named three new scholars to its Mentored Translational Research Scholars Program (KL2) for fiscal years FY2020-2021. Two of the awards are jointly funded by the departments of Neurology and Surgery at the Miller School of Medicine.
Continuing a commitment to promoting diversity in translational research, CTSI KL2 Scholar Emmanuel Thomas, M.D., Ph.D., was awarded an NIH Diversity Supplement (Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research-PA-18-906) to support Ph.D. candidate Alejandro D. Badilla.
Twenty-four diverse, creative and collaborative proposals received grants from the University of Miami to help faculty and staff members lay the foundation for the “Magicverse,” the new digital world of spatial computing from Magic Leap. Nine of the projects are co-funded by the CTSI, the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and College of Arts and Sciences.
