Decorative initial cap A National Institutes of Health-funded program through its K12 Roadmap Initiative will enable two members of the department to expand their professional experience into multidisciplinary clinical, or patient-oriented, research. The Training and Education to Advance Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Program, or TEAM, will help scientists gain the knowledge they need to translate their discoveries into evidence-based policies that improve healthcare for both individual patients and all U.S. residents. The TEAM program is a collaborative effort among the College of Engineering, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and School of Pharmacy.

Assistant Professor Justin Williams is interested in translating recent technological advances into clinical applications in neurosurgery and neural rehabilitation. He is working with mentors in biomedical engineering, medical physics, neurosurgery and neurology. A physical therapist-turned-engineer, Assistant Scientist Mary Sesto is interested in work-related musculoskeletal disorders and measuring disability associated with them, as well as designing interventions to reduce disability. She is working with mentors in biomedical engineering and orthopedic surgery. The two are among seven 2005 TEAM scholars who will receive support under the program for two to five years.
