NIH Mentored Clinical Research Training Program

The Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) at Ohio State is seeking applicants for the NIH CTSA TL1 Mentored Clinical Research Training Program. 


The overall goal of the CCTS-TL1 program is to provide trainees with the skills required to develop a career in trans-disciplinary clinical and translational research relevant to human health.

The CCTS will support up to 6 new trainees in the fields of clinical and translational science in the 2011-2012 academic year. Eligible applicants will be considered especially responsive if their focus is on one of the following priority areas: comparative effectiveness research; community engagement research; health disparities; novel technologies; or biomedical informatics. 

The program is open to:
  • Students pursuing a Ph.D. with training and research emphasis in a field devoted to clinical or translational science.
  • Post-professional degree students enrolled in resident and fellow education programs and who do not hold faculty appointments at the level of assistant professor or higher. Post-professional students must enroll in a degree-granting program (i.e., MPH in Clinical Investigation). 
  • Pre-professional degree students pursuing training in health professions (e.g. M.D., D.D.S., D.V.M., Pharmacy, Clinical Psychology, and other professional degree programs)
 TL1 awardees will receive:
  • Stipend support awarded at the NIH allowed annual maximum
  • Tuition support up to the NIH approved maximum and any additional support which may be provided by the Graduate School
  • Limited funding to defray the cost of the research program and travel to national meetings
  • Access to the CCTS professional services and staff including biostatistics, subject recruitment, and human subjects approval
  • Access to a training curriculum in clinical and translational research methodology and specialized training seminars
  • Individualized career development and project-related guidance from the trainee’s own appointed scientific committee, and
  • Participation in the national TL1 annual meeting in St. Louis

Trainees will be selected based on a competitive application process in which trainee academic qualifications, career goals, the transdisciplinary/translational science of the mentorship team and research project, and the quality of the training environment will be considerations for funding. 

Applicants must identify a mentor team and must develop a proposed research plan in consultation with that mentor team to be submitted with the application. Award recipients are required to make a minimum of a full year commitment to the training program, which includes the proposed research, didactic instruction and clinical experiences, while simultaneously meeting the requirements of their respective programs.
