Translational Advisory Committee
Translational Advisory Committee

The Translational Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of established NIH-funded investigators who are dedicated to building  translational research capacity in Alaska. This Committee focuses on strategies to build opportunities for clinical research, especially as it relates to the translation of  knowledge gained from the study of hibernating animals to improvements in overall health. For more information about the Translational Advisory Committee, please contact Dr. Kelly Drew, TRiM PI, at kldrew@alaska.edu or Dr. Robert Coker, TAC Chair, at rcoker@alaska.edu
