CCTSI KL2 Program

A mentored career development award for junior faculty engaged in clinical and translational research

Provides up to three years of funding for clinical translational research and career development to train awardees to obtain individual funding. Awardees are expected to participate in monthly mentoring/career development sessions, the CO-Mentor program. (with one of their mentors) and the national CTSA consortium meeting.

We are strongly encouraging applicants from diverse backgrounds, and those often underrepresented in clinical translational research.
