SOUTH CAROLINA CLINICAL & TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE
SCTR TL1 (T32) Predoctoral Clinical & Translational Research Training Program
The NIH-funded predoctoral training program is designed to increase the number of well-trained translational researchers who also will assume leadership roles. The program is designed for PhD and dual degree candidates with strong interest in clinical & translational research careers. The training program will provide early exposure and appropriate training in clinical research methodology, the application of cutting edge technology to clinical research, and address pipeline issues by stimulating interest from doctoral students in health- and disease-related disciplines. The program combines rigorous research experiences with a complementary didactic curriculum with a team science approach.
