Contact: info@lacats.org

The LA CaTS Center is seeking research applications to support highly innovative projects aimed at preparing major publications and grant applications to compete for extramural funding (e.g. NIH, DOD, or Foundations). The 2020 round will favor applications from junior investigators, and applications must include a mentoring component. These projects should address biological, epidemiological or clinical issues related to specific diseases that have a high prevalence among the population of Louisiana, including, but not limited to, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and HIV/AIDS. The program will support research activities and will also provide eligible pilot projects with access to scientific, statistical and regulatory cores to facilitate their development.

2020 LA CaTS Roadmap Scholars Program
Currently Accepting: Applications
Deadline: 2/3/2020
Funding Entity: LA CaTS
Award: $0.00
Contact: info@lacats.org

Each year the LA CaTS Professional Development Core selects eligible scholars into the Roadmap Scholars program. This program targets junior faculty who are just entering the field of clinical and translational research. The program supports 75% of the scholar’s salary for 2 years to provide protected time for research and training; it also covers the cost of tuition for a 40-credit Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) degree from Tulane University. This program provides the opportunity for junior faculty, together with their mentors, to design an individual Roadmap that includes didactic courses in clinical research methodology, molecular medicine, ethics, protocol design, grant writing as well as mentored research. When they complete this training, we anticipate that the scholars will have competed successfully for an NIH Career Transition (K) award or its equivalent, permitting continued protected mentored career development.
