OCTRI KL2 Program

The Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) KL2 career development program is funded by the NIH. The goal of this KL2 is to support the research training and career development of clinical and translational investigators to conduct multidisciplinary research with scientists from diverse disciplines.

All research proposed for this program must involve either clinical or translational research, defined as research with human subjects or populations or with application to human health.  At the end of this two year KL2 appointment, the scholar is expected to have received an independent career development award, such as a K award from NIH or independent funding such as a R01.
