18 Feb Meet TL1 Scholar, Anthony N. Correro II
As a CTSI TL1 scholar, I have been provided with the time and resources to focus on my development as a clinical/translational science researcher. The multi-theoretical training provided by this program has exposed me to innovative techniques that will extend my research program in directions I had never considered.
Since science and practice appear to becoming increasingly more interdisciplinary, I believe that the TL1 program has given me the tools necessary to assess and address health care challenges in a bench-to-bedside manner. For example, the CTSI Academy lecture series taught me statistical and methodological approaches to health disparities research.
By quantitatively evaluating health problems across diverse populations, scientist-practitioners can target modifiable factors influencing health, like stigma and prejudice.
