A key institutional strength, CTSI’s KL2 Career Development Award is a mentored career development program for BU’s most promising junior faculty translational researchers. Faculty who are mentored attain improved research skills and are more likely to compete successfully for research support. The BU CTSI KL2 Career Development Award is committed to diversifying the research workforce and, therefore, urge those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (UREGs) to apply.

Candidates apply annually to the program which generally supersedes T32 support and is intended to precede NIH K awards or R grants. The KL2 program provides a salary of up to $100,000 per year for two years, and additional financial support for training, lab costs, and travel.

All KL2 scholars participate in the following programs or activities:

  • Independent multidisciplinary research projects involving researchers from at least two diverse disciplines, and mentors from two disciplines
  • PRIME training
  • Training in grant writing
  • Faculty development seminars
