Webinar: Mentored Career Development in Translational Science
April 29, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Part of the Penn State CTSI Translational Science Seminar series.
In this seminar, attendees are invited to learn more about the Mentored Career Development KL2 Program, a funding opportunity for junior faculty scholars that provides protected research time and enables them to conduct clinical and translational research projects under the guidance of co-directors, Chris Sciamanna, MD, MPH, and Lorah Dorn, PhD, and a team of senior research mentors. Two former KL2 scholars, Steffany J. Fredman, PhD, and Steven Hicks, MD, PhD, will share how the program created opportunities to advance both their research and careers in translational science.
About the Mentored Career Development KL2 Program
The Mentored Career Development KL2 Program at Penn State is a two- to three-year research program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Penn State that guides scholars toward independent clinical and translational research careers. Penn State actively recruits a diverse team of research scholars who represent a variety of clinical research disciplines.
The KL2 Program provides scholars with time and resources to complete training objectives that are personalized to their needs and to submit grant applications for continued funding based on their research.
