The Center for Translation of Rehabilitation Engineering Advances and Technology (TREAT) is now accepting proposals for the center’s Sabbatical program. TREAT Sabbaticals are a fantastic onsite opportunity for rehabilitation researchers and innovators. Sabbaticals last between 3 and 12 months and allow visiting scholars to dedicate their full attention towards commercializing a rehabilitation or assistive technology concept.
During their Sabbatical, individuals are encouraged to take advantage of the wide variety of on-site expertise and resources. TREAT draws on multi-disciplinary skills from Simbex, The Dartmouth Institute, the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, and Boston University’s School of Public Health. Visiting scholars will have the opportunity to work with these experts on technology assessment, prototyping and development, and comparative effectiveness clinical research.
