Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health Policy - Support for Intramural Research Training Fellows

The Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis (JKTG) Foundation for Health and Policy continues to support Intramural Research Training Awards (IRTAs) for deserving young scholars in the NIH Intramural Training program. In 2018, the JKTG Foundation awarded two new IRTAs for scholars in the NIH Intramural Training Program during the 2018-2019 academic year.

Under the mentorship of Dr. Sharon Milgram in the Office of Intramural Training and Education, one scholar, who had research interest in nanotechnology and cancer therapeutics, received an scholarship to NIH’s Graduate Partnership Program (GPP). The other scholar, who had research interest focusing on physics and biomedical engineering received a an NIH Postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award/Cancer Research Training Award (Postbac IRTA/CRTA).

Through these IRTAs, the JKTG Foundation aims to fund fellows whose basic research could help to expand the understanding of disease and could ultimately result in clinical applications.

Goals

  • Fund the basic research of deserving young scholars in the NIH Intramural Training program, which could help to expand the understanding of disease and could ultimately result in clinical applications.

Results & Accomplishments

In 2016, the two Fellows made significant progress in their research. The Postbaccalaureate Fellow further developed his skills and took steps to enter graduate school. The Graduate Fellow submitted manuscripts for publication, presented posters and defended his dissertation. Both reported that the training tremendously benefitted their career and promoted their future success.
