Nine USC Scholars Named To New SC CTSI Training Programs
Aiming to train a new generation of translational researchers.
Aiming to train a new generation of translational researchers, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI) has named its first nine scholars in its new pre- and postdoctoral training programs.
SC CTSI's ECDE program has presented predoctoral TL1 and postdoctoral KL2 translational research training awards to young investigators highly motivated in acquiring the scientific competencies necessary to perform clinical and translational research in diverse populations with a multi-disciplinary, team-based approach.
For predoctoral students, TL1 Research Training Awards support two years of mentored career development. The program provides multi-disciplinary, team-based clinical and translational research education for students to acquire the scientific competencies necessary to perform clinical and translational research, including research in health problems of diverse populations. Students will have dual mentorship from their doctoral advisor and a translational research mentor.
The training programs of the SC CTSI have created new opportunities for faculty and students at USC and our SC CTSI partner institutions to learn how to carry out translational research, said Jonathan Samet, Flora L. Thornton Chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine at the Keck School and director of the CETCD. The first group of trainees are terrific and come from across the university and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
