KL2 Mentored Career Development Program
The KL2 Mentored Career Development Program (KL2 Scholars Program) at Stanford University is a two-year research program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Stanford Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA). The KL2 Scholars Program is designed to offer advanced training in clinical and translational research to junior faculty. The program offers flexible learning models to engage scholars in team science, individual development plans, advanced research training, and career guidance. KL2 Scholars will pursue a mentored research project in their area of expertise. It is expected that the research performed within the KL2 program will provide the basis for an independent NIH award (e.g., K23, K08, or R01).
