Postdoctoral Training in Clinical and Translational Science

We are pleased to announce a request for applications from postdoctoral Medical, Dental, Veterinary, Nursing, and PhD trainees who are interested in pursuing either a certificate or masters in clinical and translational science with funding provided by the Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT). There are two funding opportunities available:

  • CTSA TL1 Postdoctoral Training Grant

  • ITMAT Scholarship

The purpose is to provide formal structured research training for individuals interested in pursuing research careers in T1 Translational Research (testing basic research for clinical effect/applicability; i.e. preclinical, first in human, proof of concept, phase 1) and whose research is focused on the elucidation of mechanistic and therapeutic aspects of disease process. Individuals are supported while they engage in a research project and complete the Master of Science in Translational Research (MTR) degree program or the Certificate Program. Trainees may choose from a range of concentrations: Translational Therapeutics, Bioinformatics, Entrepreneurial Science, and Regulatory Science. Applicants are encouraged to contact Rachel Bastian, Administrative Director for Education, to discuss which program is best aligned for their learning objectives and career goals.
