Pre-doc Preparatory Program (P3) in Translational Research


ITMAT Education (ITMAT Ed) at Penn and the Leukodystrophy Center of Excellence (LCE) at CHOP provides a one-year Pre-doc Preparatory Program (P3) in Translational Research to formalize the education and training of research coordinators working within the Global Leukodystrophy Initiative – Clinical Trials Network (GLIA-CTN). Research coordinators, referred to as P3 Scholars, are expected to be provided with 2 hours of protected time each week to pursue formal education in clinical and translational research. Most of the sessions will be held online via Zoom with opportunities to connect in person during the annual GLIA-CTN meetings and ITMAT symposium. Funding by the GLIA-CTN consortium is provided to support program costs for participants, including travel awards to program meetings and events.
