News and Congratulations
Congratulations to Kathryn M. Dupnik, MD, CTSC KL2 Scholar Alumnus, for receiving the 2019 Clinical Scientist Development Grant Award through the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. With this award she will continue her research on the Dynamics of the HIV Reservoir and Mycobacterium tuberculosis Burden in People with HIV-TB Coinfection.
As a KL2 Career Development Award Scholar from 2015-2017, her previous research with the Clinical and Translational Science Center on TB Latency and Persistence laid the groundwork for her new research. Her mentors included Daniel W. Fitzgerald, MD, Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, and Michael S. Glickman, MD, Professor of Infectious Diseases at Hospital for Special Surgery.
Dr. Dupnik, in her own words, describes the impact the KL2 program had on her: “The CTSC education training program gave me access to supplemental training in research methods. Particularly valuable were grant writing support, REDCap, opportunities to apply editorial opportunities, and career development seminars.”
The CTSC KL2 Career Development Core Program supports junior faculty and senior residents and fellows by providing salary support, protected time, advanced degree training, and practical skills necessary to conduct interdisciplinary Clinical Translational Investigation within a team research environment.
