    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

    Effective mentorship is one of the most important contributors to a successful career in translational research. TL1 trainees and KL2 scholars benefit from the relationships and support that come from a well-planned mentoring program. During the 2020 Insights to Inspire series CTSA Program hubs that demonstrated success in improving the Careers in Clinical and Translational Research described 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

  • Insights to Inspire: Catapulting the Careers of Future Translational Scientists

    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. In 2019

    As a key currency of the scientific community, publications are often used as a measurement of success for researchers and research institutions. Published research allows an expansive community of scientists, healthcare professionals, government workers and more to make data-driven decisions that will improve population and patient health outcomes. The Clinical and Translational Science Award

    For many Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program hubs, delays in Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval can feel like a translational roadblock on scientists’ path to implementing research that may ultimately improve public health outcomes. However, as an essential part of ensuring the welfare of human research subjects, the IRB is crucial to maintaining the highest ethical
