The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) KL2 Program announces the expansion of our K & Career Development Seminars to NIH K and other career development awardees. These monthly seminars generally take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 3:30-5:00pm unless otherwise noted. Please refer to the tentative schedule below for the next academic year.


  • Be an investigator from one of the UCLA CTSI institutions (Cedars-Sinai, CDU, Harbor-UCLA, and UCLA Westwood)
  • Have a current NIH K or equivalent other federal (e.g. DOD) or foundation (e.g. AHA, Doris Duke) career development award. You will be asked to supply grant information in the registration form.


  • Work-in-Progress Presentations. Investigators will have the opportunity to present their work in progress to a diverse group of scholars and faculty.
  • Didactic Sessions. The seminars will include topics that are pertinent to career development.
  • NIH Mock Study Section. Investigators will have the opportunity to submit final drafts of their NIH grant applications for review by senior faculty and peer reviewers. These are designed to simulate an actual NIH study section.

Registration is required. Registration is closed!
