MICHR Program Prepares Individuals for Translational Research Careers – Apply Now

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Postdoctoral Translational Scholars Program (PTSP). This program is open to individuals with PhD degrees in biomedical science, engineering or social science disciplines who are interested in additional training in translational sciences.

The PTSP is designed to prepare individuals for independent careers in translational research, and the award provides trainees with an $85,000 career development award to be used over two years. Applicants will work under the direction of a mentoring team that consists of a mentor from the PhD discipline as well as a clinical mentor. The application is loosely based on a NIH “K23” grant format and includes a career development plan.

Applications are due October 2, at 5 p.m. More details are available here, or attend an informational session on August 29 from 1-2 in the Taubman Health Sciences Library.

The PTSP is offered by the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR)

MICHR is very happy to offer advice and assistance with proposal development. Contact information is available on the website.
