The Oregon Students Learn and Experience Research (OSLER) Program supports training and career development in clinical and translational research for professional and Ph.D. graduate students and postdoctoral clinical and research fellows through a TL1 grant to OCTRI and is similar to an NIH NRSA T32 grant.
Benefits and eligibility
Eligible applicants include students currently in professional training (MD, DMD, PharmD, DNP), PhD graduate students, and postdoctoral clinical (MD, DMD, PharmD, DNP) and research (PhD) fellows. Predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees at OHSU, Portland State University, University of Oregon, and Oregon State University are eligible to apply.
Professional students are expected to participate in TL1 training for 1 year, and PhD graduate students and postdoctoral trainees can expect up to 2 years of training.
The objective of this award is to provide training in translational science to enhance the focused research experience that students are gaining through graduate or postdoctoral training or to provide focused research training and experience to professional students. All students must participate in translational research training tailored to their needs while a TL1 fellow. All research proposed for this program must involve either clinical or translational research defined as involving human subjects or populations, or research that has application to human health.
Trainees receive a monthly stipend, partial tuition and fee support, funds for travel and childcare expenses, didactic coursework, journal clubs and mentored training.
This opportunity is closed. The next TL1 RFA release is anticipated for Spring 2024.
