$2.1 million NIH grant advances U-Iowa child health research
Date:3/12/2008

d by the grant will involve the new UI Institute for Clinical and Translational Science. The program also involves eight UI internal advisors and three external advisors at other institutions.

"Each scholar comes in with a unique set of interests that are matched up from a broad list of more than 30 mentors," said the grant's program director Brian Schutte, Ph.D., UI associate professor of pediatrics, who has also served as a mentor. "These scholars are exceptionally smart and creative. If they come into your lab and do research, you will learn from them as they learn from you."

Nineteen of the 26 scholars remain at the UI -- some are now mentors themselves -- while seven are building research efforts at other institutions, according to records kept by Donna Friel, grant administrator and a contracts administrator for UI Children's Hospital. "This program is a launching pad for many clinician-scientists," Friel said. "We track the grant funding these researchers go on to secure."

In addition to providing a mentored research process, the program funds protected research time and resources for young faculty members. "Funding is tighter than ever," Schutte said. "A trainee 'graduates' from the program when they are able to secure their own funding for research."

One individual who made that transition is Fred Lamb, M.D., Ph.D., UI professor of pediatrics and director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Lamb was a scholar from 1994-1997 and has been a mentor for nearly 10 years.

"Without the program, it would be hard to find an environment that is so nurturing. We do a lot of collaboration, and I like to work and think in groups. You get more done by involving others," Lamb said. "The program allowed me to work on a topic that interested me and get trained in new techniques without feeling like I was taking up someone else's productivity."

Lamb entered the program with a background in physiology and electrophysiol
