The TL1 awards support students seeking training in clinical and translational research. The CTSA selects candidates for these awards and provides full-time research training support for pre-doctoral PhD and dual degree (health professional doctorate plus PhD or master's degree) candidates and postdoctoral fellows, and short-term training for health professions students. The goal of the TL1 program is to increase the number of well-trained clinical and translational scientists who can lead the design and oversight of future investigations in preclinical, clinical, implementation science, and population health research, all of which are critical to the overall mission of NCATS and NIH.
