Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1)

Modified: November 17, 2015

The Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences (NUCATS) Institute is pleased to announce a Call for Applications for the Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1). This is a new program recently funded as part of the NUCATS Institute Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) which is supported by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Funding for TL1 trainees selected during this award cycle is anticipated to begin on March 1, 2016. The letter of intent is due November 10, 2015 and full applications are due December 1, 2015.

The NUCATS TL1 is a novel training program that seeks to promote interactions between pediatric mentors and trainees and other scientific disciplines, such as engineering and basic science, who desire to apply their discipline to a project in child and adolescent health. These areas include: bioengineering, informatics, population science, human services research, materials science, operations research, imaging, signal processing and analysis, gaming theory, and communication disorders. The TL1 Program will support postdoctoral fellows in a dynamic, multidisciplinary, two-year fellowship program that produces investigators equipped to apply translational scientific approaches to challenges in child and adolescent health research.
