The OCTRI KL2 Program is designed to support early-career faculty in their transition to research independence. The mission of this program is to identify and support promising faculty who may benefit from OCTRI support and resources in their efforts to obtain independent research funding.
Recipients of the KL2 Program receive a two-year career development award to pursue their translational research. Awardees are given protected clinical and translational research training time, formal didactic and experiential training, intensive research experience and multidisciplinary mentorship.
Benefits and eligibility
This opportunity supports the research training and career development of clinical and translational researchers for a maximum of two years.
All research proposed for this program must involve either clinical or translational research defined as involving human subjects or populations, or research that has direct application to human health.
The OCTRI KL2 Program is open to researchers from OHSU and regional partners, including Portland State University, Oregon State University and University of Oregon.
The KL2 is currently closed. The next anticipated application cycle will open spring 2022.
