TL1 Participants

Henrietta Fasanya

“I have the opportunity to work with an engineering team and learn how mechanical engineers contribute to translational science. Through our project specifically, I’m learning about obtaining patents and understanding how, when, and in what direction you push projects forward for translational science.”

Henrietta Fasanya

Leanne Dumeny

“The team aspect was particularly motivating for me. Working in a collaboration added a different blend to my work.”

Leanne Dumeny

Robert Eisinger

“It has opened opportunities and collaborations that I otherwise would not have pursued. The team-based approach is novel and enriching and by far the highlight of this program”

Robert Eisinger
