Congratulations to Dr. Brittany Taylor, assistant professor, who was accepted to the Training in Grantsmanship for Rehabilitation Research (TIGRR) workshop.
The competitive TIGRR workshop provides one-on-one mentorship to researchers facing their first major research grant. The annual four-day workshop includes structured sessions on hypothesis development, study design, federal funding mechanisms, and peer review, with a particular focus on rehabilitation research. The target audience includes junior and mid-level faculty in all rehabilitation research disciplines, many of whom are on the cusp of success in NIH-funded or similar research.
Taylor’s research investigates the regenerative and reparative processes of musculoskeletal tissues to inform the development of tailored acellular regenerative engineering approaches. Her group is particularly interested in identifying the biological and structural mechanisms that contribute to the tendon’s limited healing capacity and using biomimetic matrices, tunable multifactorial delivery systems, and modified subcellular components to overcome deficiencies and complement the healing response.
