Deadline Approaching for NIH Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program Funding Announcement

May 28th, 2018 is the final deadline to submit Letters of Intent and CVs for the NIH Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program. All submissions must be forwarded to the attention of CTSI-CN KL2 Program Lead, Ms. Rachel Smilow at rsmilow@childrensational.org.

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 new announcement is one of several programs supported by the NIH to recruit junior faculty early in their career with the creativity and commitment to develop clinical and translational research on the NIH campus.

Because of the highly competitive nature of this award, CRI will select and support the application of one individual and will assist in the review, assembly and packaging of the award. Please review the qualifications for this award on the Lasker website. If you qualify, send a CV and Letter of Intent with details on how your application meets the criteria detailed on the website. Note that this is a 10 year commitment.
