ACTS-AFMR Translational Science 2014 Annual Meeting

The UCLA CTSI have four KL2 Scholars and one TL1 trainee who have been selected to present posters at the Annual Translational Science Meeting which is being jointly sponsored by the Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS) and American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR) on April 9-11, 2014 in Washington, DC.  

The CTSI KL2 Scholars Program and TL1 Translational Science Fellowship focus on developing leaders in clinical research; scholars are trained to design and oversee research in multidisciplinary team settings, skills critical to a successful career in translational science and the overall mission of the NIH. CTSI TL1 Translational Science Fellows are also provided early exposure and appropriate training in clinical research; these pre-doctoral students are enrolled in medical, dental and nursing schools in addition to pharmacy, public health and other allied health disciplines.

For those attending the ACTS-AFMR event, their poster session information can be found below.
