The goal of the CTSC TL1 Training Award is to support career development among pre- and early post-doctoral trainees near the beginning of their careers by providing rigorous training and mentoring to conduct translational team research across disciplines and institutions.
TL1 projects must have a translational or clinical research focus; purely basic research proposals will not be funded. Pre-clinical studies should have near-term potential to translate into patient-oriented research. Emphasis is placed on precision medicine, drug discovery, targeted therapeutics, biomarker or device development and novel technologies; projects focusing on health needs of LGBTI and underserved populations and/or directly impacting health outcomes in the community; pediatric and women’s health studies; life course studies of disease; and studies incorporating biostatistical methodologies and design.
TL1 Trainees pursue research training on a full-time basis, defined by NIH as 40 hours per week (100% time and effort). Appointments are normally made for 12 months (no less than 9 months). Trainees receive:
