Kinesiology doctoral student Braxton Linder was selected to be a trainee for the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science’s Predoctoral Clinical/Translational Research Program. As a 2022-2023 CCTS TL1 trainee, Linder will spend 12 months in an immersive program where he will develop projects focused on reducing health disparities and/or diseases that disproportionately affect the Deep South. In addition, as a fellow, Linder will complete a core curriculum, gain experience writing a manuscript and present his research at a national conference.

“This fellowship will provide me protected time to invest into data collection, analysis and presentation/publication for aspects of my dissertation project,” he said. “This fellowship will allow me the resources and experiences to continue to grow my knowledge as a physiologist, specifically more deeply understanding the mechanics of cardiovascular physiology, and allow me to begin developing an interdisciplinary specialty in immunology.”
