The TL1 Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) Fellowship is a translational research training program for pre- and post-doctoral students who find innovative ways to advance research from the initial discovery through improved patient outcomes and health policy. The TL1 Clinical and Translational Science Fellowship, offered by the Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE), provides a stipend and partial tuition support for at least one year of multidisciplinary clinical and translational research. Both pre- and post-doctoral students are eligible for the TL1 CTS Fellowship.
- must commit to at least one year of full-time mentored research (could be reappointed)
- must have received a baccalaureate degree by the start of their NRSA trainee appointment
- cannot be supported by other federal funds
- must have a research or clinical doctorate, including clinical fellows and residents
- must commit to at least one year of training and research (could be reappointed)
- must have received a PhD, MD, DDS, PharmD, DNP, ScD, DrPH, or comparable degree by the start of their NRSA trainee appointment
Throughout the TL1 program, pre- and post-doctoral fellows engage in coursework and research, as well as conduct one or more translational research projects under the mentorship of a multidisciplinary team comprised of exceptional scientists. The overarching goal is to speed the translation of discoveries and improve the efficiency with which these discoveries are implemented in practice.
