College of Human Sciences student Krissy Smith wins National Predoctoral Clinical/Translational Research Fellowship
Auburn University Nutrition/Dietetics PhD student Krissy Smith is already an accomplished researcher and excellent student, and now, is one of only a handful of PhD students around the country to receive a place in the Center for Clinical and Translational Science’s TL1 program. For the next year, Smith will use the fellowship designation to study how improved diets can reduce anxiety in breast cancer survivors.
The Predoctoral Clinical/Translational Research Program, or TL1, is a yearlong fellowship in which participants develop research focused on reducing health disparities or disease that disproportionately affect the Deep South. Fellowship winners receive the National Institutes of Health National Research Service award stipend, travel support to attend the Association for Clinical and Translational Science national meeting and tuition assistance, as well as mentorship and networking opportunities.
