Nominations are open for the TRFP Fellowship

The Translational Research Fellows Program (TRFP) is an exciting collaboration between the Institute for Systems Biology and Providence (Rhode Island, USA) St. Joseph Health that leverages respective systems-based research and clinical expertise. Nominations are now open.

TRFP fellows will have the unique opportunity to translate research from bench to bedside. The three-year, multidisciplinary program provides an independent, fully funded research environment free of the formal teaching responsibilities that typically accompany postdoc and early-faculty tracks.

Candidates must have a PhD or MD/PhD, should have their degree by September 2018, and should not have more than three years prior post-doctoral experience by the beginning of the fellowship program.

To be eligible, candidates must be nominated by experts in the research community.

Nomination letters should describe a candidate’s qualifications and key attributes, such as:

  • Out-of-the-box thinking and exceptional creativity
  • Bold vision for catalyzing the future of medicine
  • Ability to bridge disciplines
  • Exceptional potential to translate discoveries from benchtop to bedside for enhanced clinical outcomes.
