CTSI's educational efforts are consolidated under the Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE). The ICRE offers a variety of educational, training, and career development programs designed to enhance understanding of, and promote careers in, clinical and translational research.
The CTS-KL2 is a highly competitive program for junior faculty at the University of Pittsburgh. The program offers 75 percent salary support for up to five years to provide protected time to conduct preliminary research for a career development award. Scholars are expected to apply for a K award or another career development award in the first year of the program.
The KL2 Clinical and Translational Science Scholars Program for junior faculty, offered by the Institute for Clinical Research Education (ICRE), is a multidisciplinary career development program supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) through the KL2 mechanism.

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.
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.
