- Mentored clinical and translational research and education
|A two-year mentored research & education program for junior faculty and senior fellows.||KL2/Catalyst Medical Research Investigator Training|
The KL2/Catalyst Medical Research Investigator Training (CMeRIT) program provides advanced training in clinical and translational research to senior fellows and junior faculty from all health professions represented by Harvard Catalyst, including medicine, dentistry, and nursing.
Awardees will pursue a mentored research project in their area of expertise. It is expected that the research performed within the KL2/CMeRIT program will provide the basis for an independent NIH award (e.g., K23, KO8, or RO1).
Awardees will also pursue an educational program that fulfills the mission of the program and provides optimal training in their chosen career objectives. They may do this by taking part in the courses found in the Advanced Curriculum Compendium where applicable, or by participating in Harvard Catalyst-based courses.
Each awardee will work with his/her mentor to develop and execute a work plan for his/her research project. Mentors must be accomplished investigators in clinical and translational research and have a track record of success in training new investigators and fostering their success as independent researchers. An advisory committee will connect each awardee with a group of experienced clinicians and researchers to provide additional resources in the fields of genetics, biostatistics, biomarkers, and imaging.
