KL2 Mentored Career Development Program
Each awardee will have at least two mentors — a Research Mentor, who serves as a guide for their research project, and an Academic/Career Mentor, who provides career/academic oversight and professional advice. The KL2 Program Director will assign the Academic/Career Mentors.
Mentors are accomplished investigators in clinical and translational research with a track record of success in training new investigators and fostering their success as independent researchers.
An initial and annual Career Development Plan is required. An overall program advisor will monitor awardee during the award period to ensure milestones are met.
