Pioneers in Research

The University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) is one of 23 schools nationwide to receive a grant from Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), called Med to Grad, helping Ph.D students learn to move laboratory research to clinical trials.

Dr. Helen Yin started the program at UTSW, calling the participating students pioneers.

"This major grant from HHMI is a creative initiative that highlights the fundamental linkage among our core missions of education, research and patient care," said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, president of UT Southwestern. "It will significantly further out highest priorities as an academic medical center committed to biomedical research and its translation into innovative patient care."
