Clinical and Translational Investigator Program (CTIP)

The Clinical and Translational Investigator Program is a unique non-degree two-year program for postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty and CTSC-affiliated scholars (including KL2 Mentored Career Development scholars and Master of Science in Clinical Research students). The aim is to provide a supportive environment for developing clinical and translational competencies.

Participants meet monthly to discuss their research, research ethics, and other topics related to conducting clinical and translational research. Each scholar makes four presentations over the two-year period: specific aims, significance and innovation; methods; a podium style presentation of study results; and a research ethics vignette. Presenters receive feedback from their peers and faculty mentors, representing approximately 12 different departments in the School of Medicine, College of Pharmacy and College of Nursing. The program is also closely coordinated with the CTSC’s Participant and Clinical Interactions unit, which helps to facilitate hands-on mentoring for scholars on clinical study processes.

The monthly meetings also include didactic presentations that focus on clinical and translational methods and cross-disciplinary research resources. Presentations have been given on study database management, comparative effectiveness research, engaging communities, clinical trials support FDA IND/IDE submission, among others. Core directors and specialists are invited to share information on resources available through the CTSC and other campus centers. Since 2010, CTIP scholars have obtained approximately 40 extramural grants. The program is also effective at building collegiality among junior faculty and introducing researchers to others in different fields with similar interests.

Lightning Talks

During their first year in the Biomedical Sciences program, students (MS, PhD, MD/PhD) participate in lab rotations to help them identify research interests and mentors.  After each rotation they give a short (5 min) presentation on their lab experience.

Student Research Day

Student Research Day is a day-long event when BSGP students give short talks or present a poster regarding their research. A speaker is invited and the talk is followed by an open lunch for all students, faculty and post-docs. The best oral talks or poster presentations receive awards and recognition.
