A critical function of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI-CN) is to train highly motivated individuals from different disciplines with varied scholarly interests to conduct multidisciplinary clinical/patient-oriented research. This is one of several programs within the CTSI-CN and is called the Mentored Career Development Award(KL2). The KL2 program recruits junior faculty early in their career who have demonstrated the aptitude and commitment to undertake multidisciplinary clinical and translational research.
In this round of the KL2 process, up to 2 awards will be made if sufficiently meritorious applications are received. Funding will be awarded for 2 years; a maximum of 3 years of funding will be considered if sufficient justification is provided for a 3-year research and training program.
Those interested in applying for the KL2 should download the KL2 RFA and diversity form for complete detail regarding the application process and funding requirements.
