The Insights to Inspire (I2I) is a series of blogs and/or webinars highlighting the innovative and unique strategies implemented by a CTSA Program institution to improve on a given Common Metric. The insights gained may inspire hubs to use this actionable intelligence to move the needle on the metrics.
The goals of the I2I are to:
- Foster innovation and new ideas
- Encourage collaboration across institutions
- Inspire action

Enriching the Clinical Research Workforce by Developing Diverse and Inclusive Career Programs is now available to view or print.
The Careers in Clinical and Translational Research Metric is designed to measure and develop strategic management plans to enhance the ways CTSA program hubs train and support scientists to remain engaged in research. To measure and report the success of the metric, hubs conduct follow-up surveys to determine if scholars and trainees have remained in clinical research upon completion of the
The Duke CTSA KL2 program was recently identified as one of the top program hubs by the Center for Leading Innovation and Collaboration (CLIC). The Duke KL2 program was a top performer in the KL2 education program – Underrepresented measure. The CLIC evaluates programs using a Common Metrics Initiative. In alignment with the CLIC’s current goals, the Duke KL2 program set a goal to increase the
The purpose of the Careers in Clinical and Translational Research metric is to measure and develop strategic plans to enhance the ways hubs and the entire CTSA Program consortium are training and supporting the future workforce. This support is vital to helping trainees remain engaged in clinical and translational science. One of the earliest opportunities hubs have to support early-career
For CTSA Program hubs, supporting and promoting the career development of their trainees and scholars can be a lengthy process. Before a hub can evaluate the success of their TL1 or KL2 educational training programs, before trainees or scholars can receive effective mentoring, every hub has to take the first step: recruiting researchers into the program. As a part of the Insights to Inspire 2020
The purpose of the Careers in Clinical and Translational Research metric is to measure the success of CTSA Program hubs in training scientists who will stay engaged in the field specifically with regard to underrepresented persons (URP) and women. However, engagement is not the only factor for continued success. The value of science to society is the ability to both collect data and analyze
Investing in the next generation is critically important in any industry, but it’s a particular focus within the field of translational science. The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program helps train, cultivate and sustain future leaders of the biomedical research workforce through TL1 Clinical Research Training Awards and KL2 Mentored Clinical Research Scholar Awards.
