KL2 Mentored Career Development Award

The KL2 Mentored Career Development Award combines didactic training, mentoring, exposure to multidisciplinary research, and ongoing evaluation to prepare young investigators for careers in patient oriented research (POR). The award serves as a "bridge" by which young junior faculty can achieve research independence. KL2 scholars complete a rigorous training program that guarantees exposure to a wide range of clinical and translational research methods in both classroom and experiential settings.
