The UCLA CTSI KL2 Translational Science Award supports highly qualified junior faculty from one of the four partnered institutions (UCLA, Cedars-Sinai, Charles R. Drew University, and Lundquist Institute at Harbor-UCLA) to conduct mentored, interdisciplinary and translational research. The program is specifically designed to meet an important goal of the UCLA CTSI: To provide the next generation of clinicians and researchers with the training they need to conduct research across engineering, physics and other disciplines to improve health.
UCLA CTSI KL2 Translational Science Scholars will receive up to 3 years of funding or until receipt of an individual NIH K award (or equivalent grant from the Veterans Administration or foundation), whichever comes first. Continued KL2 support in years 2 (2021-22) and 3 (2022-23) will be contingent on the awardee’s performance during the prior year(s). Please note that years 2 and 3 are also contingent on the renewal of the UCLA CTSI grant. The following table lists the maximum allowable amounts per year.
