The VPCAT Research Scholars Program has been designed to offer intensive mentorship and support to early-stage faculty members engaged in clinical and translational research in transitioning to accomplished, funded principal investigators. 

VPCAT leverages the resources of our institution to augment departmental resources in support of junior faculty investigators using a holistic framework, the  Matrix Mentoring Model, that includes five levels of mentorship: self, scientific, peer, senior, and staff. During the 2-year program, scholars receive training in scientific career development, grant writing and management, and leadership designed to create empowered principal investigators.
