A unique program at UTMB has won a national award for innovations in research training and education. The program, a joint effort of several UTMB groups, the Institute for Translational Sciences, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the School of Medicine, was recognized by the Association of American Medical Colleges. The UTMB Human Pathophysiology and Translational Medicine program in the GSBS is headed by Dr. Mark Hellmich. The Translational Medicine Track in the School of Medicine was developed collaboratively with Drs. Judy Aronson and Gustavo Valbuena. “Drs. Hellmich, Aronson and Valbuena have created a truly innovative approach that helps graduate students and medical students learn to work as a team from the very start of their professional education,” said Dr. Danny Jacobs, executive vice president and provost, and dean of the School of Medicine.
