Early career investigators receive TL1 awards to solve child health problems
Five clinical fellows in pediatrics and postdoctoral fellows in engineering or data science have received TL1 awards. The TL1 program was established by Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS) with the support of the NIH, with the goal of promoting multidisciplinary training to improve the health of children and adolescents. The awardees, selected by a committee of experts and NUCATS, will receive support from their mentors in engineering and medicine, complete formal coursework and receive protected research time, all with the goal of allowing them to build a strong foundation for a career in research. NUCATS promotes collaboration among early career investigators as they work to solve child health problems. Read more.
