A Changing of the Guard for UR CTSI Translational Biomedical Sciences PhD Program
Tim Dye, Ph.D., has stepped down as the director of the Translational Biomedical Science PhD program after a very successful five-year reign that dramatically improved the diversity of the program. Edwin van Wijngaarden, Ph.D., a highly experienced educator and mentor and the UR CTSI's strategic director of Research Education, has taken up the role of interim director. Dye is looking forward to refocusing on his research with isolated and marginalized communities and van Wijngaarden is eager to meet with program trainees and mentors to get their input on new directions for the program.
