TL1 Program

The TL1 offers support, mentoring and training opportunities for late-stage pre-doctoral and early-stage post-doctoral scholars conducting research in the area of health care and/or translational medicine. The program provides stipends, training and mentoring while emphasizing the scholar’s success within their established research area. The fundamental goal of the program is to help and support scholars as they advance in their research careers, and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to eventually develop into successful, independent researchers. The program encourages productivity, collaborative research and career development.
