Indiana CTSI Predoctoral Training Award applications due Feb. 3

Jan. 16, 2014

The Indiana CTSI is seeking applicants for special predoctoral training awards in translational research.

Opportunities available for CTSI Pre-doctoral Trainees include annual stipend of $24,500; partial tuition and fees for coursework relevant to the applicant's research; mentoring with a faculty member whose research program includes peer reviewed, extramurally funded clinical or translational research; networking with other pre and post-doctoral trainees, program mentors, and allied researchers from multiple institutions in Indiana to develop a corss-disciplinary community of scientists; and attendance at a national meeting that involves similar trainees from 40 other medical schools and research institutions.

Translational research refers to what is popularly termed as "bench to bedside"; the process by which research in the lab translates into patient treatment.

Translation may involve applying discoveries made during research (in the lab, through animal studies, etc.) to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans, or carrying out research aimed at enhancing the adoption of best practices, or both.

To be eligible, candidates must be a second or third year pre-doctoral graduate student at one of the CTSI partner institutions: Indiana University, Purdue University or the University of Notre Dame. Funding is for one year and is renewable for one additional year based upon progress attained.
