KL2 Junior Faculty Scholars Program: Now Accepting Applications

With support from a Clinical and Translational Science Award from the NIH National Center for Advancing Clinical and Translational Science (NCATS), we are pleased to announce the next round of applications for our Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) KL2 award.

This K-series career development award is nearly identical to our previous KL2 awards and analogous to individual K23 or K08 awards, with a focus on developing early-career (MD or equivalent; doctorally-trained nurses, pharmacists or dentists; and clinically or translationally-oriented PhD) faculty investigators through an inter- or multi-disciplinary mentored research experience so that they can become independent, extramurally-funded investigators. Given the goals of the GHUCCTS, awards will favor those: 1) who propose novel trans-, inter-, or multi-disciplinary and collaborative research projects, 2) from the entire T1-T4 translational continuum, 3) which span departments, disciplines, and institutions, and 4) address significant health disparities.

Learn more and apply on the GHUCCTS website.   

Anyone planning to submit an application in response to this request for applications should complete and submit the Pre-Application Form (online) by September 15, 2017 in order to ensure that the planned application will be responsive.

Complete application due by 11:59 PM ON JANUARY 8, 2018
