The CTSA One Health Alliance (COHA), supported by a CTSA Innovation Award from NIH/NCATS, is supporting 2-year research fellowships to engage veterinary clinical specialists in inter-disciplinary research teams. 

The COHA Translational Research Fellowship provides 2 years of support for research training of residency trained veterinary specialists. The Fellowship provides a salary stipend at the NIH postdoctoral pay scale, plus $2,500 for travel or training-related expenses. Fellows must devote at least 75% effort to research, but may supplement this with up to 25% effort devoted to clinical duties that are relevant to the proposed research and are funded separately by the training institution. Fellows must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents for this NIH-funded initiative.

Interested trainees should contact the primary mentor of an opportunity to discuss an application to COHA.          Full applications are due in January - see full instructions here:

Fellowship application instructions

Eligible applicants will be 3rd year veterinary residents or newly board certified veterinary specialists. Potential fellows may also submit a proposal with a mentor team that is NOT listed as a fellowship opportunity on the COHA website. The mentor team should be interdisciplinary (i.e. a mix of DVM, MD, PhD or other health professionals), located at one of the 16 COHA sites, and have active NIH funding for at least one mentor.

For more information about COHA fellowships, please contact Dr. Lauren Trepanier ([email protected]) or Dr. Rob Rebhun ([email protected])

Congratulations to our COHA fellows appointed to date!
