A study by researchers at Seattle Children’s has found that a collaborative care approach may help reduce anxiety and depression in adolescents with persistent post-concussive symptoms. Learn how the researchers partnered with ITHS to survey participants and gather data for their study.
The newly launched program will create a network of institution-specific point people, or Network Navigators, across the five-state WWAMI region. The Network Navigators will act as a gateway to ITHS, helping local academic investigators find the collaborations, resources, and answers they need to advance their research.
The FDA and NIH have recently finalized several proposals that aim to improve the quality and efficiency of clinical trial research. Learn how these changes may affect you and your ongoing and future trials.
Has your research team ever gotten to the end a study, only to wish you’d gone about data collection differently? Here are four strategies for optimizing your data collection from Bas de Veer, REDCap expert and senior computer specialist at ITHS.
The Translational Research Scholars Program (formerly known as the Rising Stars Program) is a faculty career-development program that provides promising early stage investigators from the WWAMI region with a high-quality, targeted and structured career development package for one year.
Deadline: February 17, 2017
The ITHS TL1 Program is a one-year mentored research training program for predoctoral students. The program provides trainees with specific training, career development opportunities, and team science skills to help them function effectively within translational science teams.
Deadline: January 16, 2017
The ITHS Early Investigator Catalyst Award program is designed to provide “just-in-time” resources to investigators looking to complete a project or collect pilot data for a larger grant application. Investigators can receive a maximum of $5,000 (direct costs only) toward the purchase of supplies or core services not provided by ITHS.
Deadline: January 1, 2017
The ITHS is offering Voucher Awards as “in-kind” service vouchers for IRB or IACUC approved or exempt investigations in support of outstanding translational research. Our goal is to provide translational research studies with critical support needed for a project.
Deadline: January 1, 2017

Idaho Diversity Network
As part of our efforts in supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in Idaho, Idaho EPSCoR established the Idaho Diversity Network (formerly known as Idaho STEM Higher Education Network).
The Network fosters communication across campuses to encourage the formation and dissemination of new ideas, values, and learning, and provides leadership to carry out integrative activities.
The Network involves Idaho’s three public universities and 2 and 4 year colleges and assists in creating sustainable partnerships, and strengthening recruitment and retention efforts, particularly for underrepresented minorities, women, and persons with disabilities.
The Idaho Diversity Network holds at least three statewide meetings each year to discuss STEM/diversity initiatives (see Meetings for additional information).
UPCOMING EVENT — Feb 8-9, 2017 | Boise State University
Mentoring Conference: Strategies for Student and Faculty Mentors
Dr. Valerie Purdie-Vaughns is a professor in the Department of Psychology at Columbia University and an instructor at Columbia Business School. In 2015, she was the recipient of the distinguished Columbia University Lenfest Award for excellence in teaching and mentoring.Overview: The Idaho Diversity Network will be holding a 2-day conference to provide professional development for faculty and students on effective strategies for mentoring students from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and related fields.
Eligibility: To be eligible to participate, students and faculty must be either enrolled/or teaching at an Idaho College or University. Participants will be selected via application process. Students engaged in peer-mentoring and staff and/or faculty who are currently mentoring undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.
To Apply: Priority deadline for student and faculty applications is January 6, 2017. Selected participants will receive travel funding and hotel accommodations and will be required to complete a pre-conference assignment.
Funding for this project is provided by NSF / Idaho EPSCoR, Award No. IIA-1301792

WHAT SCHOLARS SAY
“The pilot data acquired during the Translational Research Scholars Program will help establish feasibility and provide preliminary data to support a larger NIH-funded study. The funding from ITHS has been crucial in getting some of this pilot data.” – Dr. Sujata Pradhan, UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine
“The funding I got through the Translational Research Scholars Program helped me to do some experiments in my lab. But, more importantly, the actual programs I was partaking in, the monthly conference calls, onsite visits, career development aspects, and other things helped me put together a strong R21 application.” – Dr. Kirk Hevener, Idaho State University
“The Translational Research Scholars Program makes me feel connected to a larger network of researchers that I can call upon. I think I would feel isolated without that.” – Dr. Cynthia Curl, Boise State University
Applications accepted until February 17, 2017.

WHAT PAST TRAINEES SAY
“With the generous TL1 funding, I had more time and energy to focus on my research project. I also appreciated the peer support. I learned a lot from colleagues in my cohort.” – Musetta Fu, Nurse Practitioner at UW Medicine
“The ITHS TL1 program has helped me learn how to communicate to others about my work and think about how my work links to other disciplines.” – Sharon Borja, UW School of Social Work
