Mentors

Collaborate:   
with people from diverse backgrounds who are strongly motivated to advance problem-solving designs to advance human health!

Translational Mentors:

are researchers, faculty and industry members who are willing to give of their time to engage with students in the TRP to share their experiences–over coffee (or tea)–, act as sounding boards for student ideas, and reflect on Translational Projects and gaps that could lead to interesting Translational Capstone Projects.
