The Miami CTSI is pleased to announce the latest scholar to receive our Mentored Translational Research Scholars Program Award (KL2) is Jennifer Coto, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology, Division of Audiology.
This past Spring, the Miami CTSI sponsored four faculty to attend the Eureka Institute's International Certificate Program in Translational Medicine. With a focus on communication, team building, and one-on-one mentorship, the program is designed to train and mentor early career researchers in translational science.
Career Development awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), also known as K awards, and similar awards for early-stage investigators, play an important role in the career trajectory of physician scientists and researchers. These awards provide mentorship and training, establish a track record for future grant support, and help to establish faculty as independent investigators.
