Barts Haematologists Awarded International Research Mentorship Programme
This year marks the third year of the prestigious Translational Research Training in Hematology (TRTH) programme, and the third year that the Centre for Haemato-Oncology at Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary, University of London has produced a successful candidate.
The TRTH program is a joint effort of the European Hematology Association (EHA) and the American Society of Hematology (ASH) and is focused on helping early-career scientists build successful careers in hematological translational research. Twenty scientists are selected through a competitive 2 stage process – an initial letter of intent with an abstract of their research followed by a full research proposal. The programme contains a week-long spring course and two follow-up meetings where trainees make a presentation on the status of their research. The TRTH faculty is made up of international leaders in hematology who cover biostatistics and biomarkers, genetics and molecular biology, ethics, and phase I clinical study design.
