The Clinical and Translational Science Training (CTST) program works with partners to integrate an extensive array of research education and training activities. CTST supports and expands discipline-specific research training programs for investigators translating "laboratory to human subjects" and "evidence into practice." Finally, the program aims to sustain, expand, and further develop the research education program to provide didactic training for learners at all levels.
Post-doctoral Training & Beyond
