T32 Pre-Doctoral Program: Team Oriented Training across the Translational Sciences Spectrum (TOTTS)

Provides support for pre-doctoral trainees to develop skills for conducting team oriented clinical and translational research and science spanning the pre-clinical to population health translational spectrum. Trainees will be co-mentored by faculty with diverse clinical and translational interests and expertise.

The Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and its Education, Training and  Career Development Programs are committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity. Diversity and equity drive excellence in clinical and translational research and how that evidence is applied. We lead and support programs and initiatives that address inequities and injustices in under-served populations, as well as inequities within our translational workforce. We are dedicated to working with trainees, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds to continuously foster a culture of inclusivity.
