University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston gets $4.2 million award from NIH
The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has received $4.2 million to train new rehabilitation clinicians and researchers.
The $4.2 million award from the National Institutes of Health will help expand scientific training and research to improve the rehabilitation and treatment of people with disabilities, according to a press release from UTMB. The grant will support the training and research activities of about 10 faculty investigators who will be members of interdisciplinary research teams.
"The Rehabilitation Research Career Development program will increase the number of rigorously trained and scientifically competent rehabilitation scientists, who will conduct translational investigations, lead clinical research teams and eventually mentor the next generation of occupational and physical therapy investigators," Kenneth Ottenbacher, director of the Division of Rehabilitation Sciences at UTMB and lead investigator, said in the release.
Established in 1891, Texas' first academic health center comprises four health sciences schools, three institutes for advanced study, a research enterprise and a health system offering primary and specialized medical services.
The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston is at 301 University Blvd., Galveston.
