Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) KL2 Program

As Co-Directors, Maureen A. Murtaugh and David Turok administer this Institutional KL2 program for clinical and translational research. This program was developed in 2008 as part of the CCTS Education Core's growth. Based upon available funding, a Call for Proposals goes out in January to department chairs and colleges within the School of Medicine. Administrators nominate their strongest candidates to go through the application process. Scholars are selected in April by the CCTS Internal Advisory Committee.
