KL2 Junior Faculty Scholars Program - Request for Applications

We are pleased to announce a supplemental round of Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) KL2 awards with this call for new applications FOR GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY (MEDICAL CENTER, GUMC) EMPLOYED FULLTIME FACULTY (only). Full applications will be due on October 9, 2023, with an anticipated appointment date of January 2024.

During its first thirteen years, the GHUCCTS has been privileged to award KL2 support to 21 junior faculty colleagues from Georgetown and Howard Universities and from MedStar Health, who have leveraged this opportunity in order to publish >500 peer-reviewed manuscripts, receive over 50 extramural grants and conduct 30 sponsored clinical trials.

This  K-series  career  development award  is  nearly identical to our previous KL2 awards and analogous to individual  K23,  K08, or K01 awards, with a focus on developing early-career (MD or equivalent; doctorally-trained  nurses, pharmacists or dentists; and clinically or translationally-oriented  PhD)  faculty  investigators  through  an inter- or multi-disciplinary mentored translational research experience so that they can become independent, extramurally-funded investigators. Given the goals of the GHUCCTS, awards will favor those: 1) who propose novel trans-, inter-, or multi-disciplinary and collaborative/team research projects;, 2) from the entire T1-T4 translational continuum; 3) which span departments, disciplines, and institutions; and, 4) address significant health disparities.
