CTSI Postdoctoral Training Award in Translational Research

Submission Deadline: December 12, 2019

Description from the website: “The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) is seeking applicants for special postdoctoral training awards in translational research. In biomedical terminology, translational research refers to what is popularly termed as "bench to bedside"; the process by which research in the lab translates into patient treatment. Translation may involve applying discoveries made during research (in the lab, through animal studies, etc.) to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans, or carrying out research aimed at enhancing the adoption of best practices, or both. To be eligible, candidates must have received a PhD or equivalent degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution.”
