Congratulations to May 2016 Translational Science PhD Graduates

Jane Shen-Gunther, MD (shown in photo on left) , and Grace Lee, PharmD, graduated from the Translational Science PhD program in May 2016.  Jane and Grace are the third and fourth graduates of the TS PhD program, following in footsteps of Kelly Reveles, PharmD, PhD in 2014 and Jay Bucci, MD, PhD in 2015.

The TS PhD is a joint degree program between UTHSCSA, UT San Antonio, and UT Austin and in collaboration with the UTHSC-Houston School of Public Health.  The program, operated under the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science since 2012, is the only three-institution PhD program within the UT System.  Students have a “Home” institution but are active students at all three universities.  Graduates from the program receive their diplomas from their Home institutions, but the diploma itself lists all three degree-granting institutions.  To date, two students each have graduated from UTHSCSA and UT Austin.  The first UTSA graduate is anticipated in fall 2016.

Following graduation, Jane will continue her service in the U.S. Army as the Chief of the Department of Clinical Investigation and Associate Program Director of the Clinical Research Fellowship at Brooke Army Medical Center.  Grace will join UT Austin as an Assistant Professor in the College of Pharmacy.

Please join us in congratulating Jane and Grace!
