Contact PD/PI: Berglund, Lars F Inst-Career-Dev-001 (821)INSTITUTIONAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT CORE: KL2SUMMARY / ABSTRACTThe UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) KL2 Mentored Career Development Programwas initiated in 2006 to train and empower the next generation of junior faculty in clinical and translationalresearch. The program is a critical component of the UC Davis translational research infrastructure, providingthe necessary research training to develop team science investigators capable of becoming leaders in theirrespective fields. We have trained exceptional junior faculty, expanded the team science and collaborativeelements of the program, ensured a rigorous team mentoring experience, and continued our integration ofinstitutional K career development programs as partners. Our fundamental objective is to produce aqualitatively different investigator, drawn from diverse disciplines and committed to excellence, with strategicskills, broad perspectives, and knowledge necessary to be successful leaders in academic, industry, andcommunity settings. By building on our robust foundation we will extend the translational research educationand career development mission throughout our institution, create diversified training tools to individualizetraining and career development that will go beyond incremental advances, and develop a strong mentoringresource to nurture and foster the career development of a continuously growing community of scholars. TheCTSC KL2 training program is unique among the programs offered, and capitalizes on a wealth of CTSC andUC Davis opportunities. Our goals for the proposed funding period include to: (1) Develop a highly skilledmultidisciplinary, team-oriented diverse workforce through an individually tailored program that ensures futureleaders that can bring solutions to complex clinical and translational challenges, (2) Enhance competencies offaculty mentors and facilitate the transition of scholars into a community of mentors that will drivetransformative research advances, and (3) Capitalize on the catalytic, facilitating, and organizational power ofthe CTSC to aggregate and align UC Davis faculty and scholar-focused resources to accelerate careertrajectories. With strong institutional support the CTSC will serve as an honest broker to engage departmental,center, institutional leaders, and CTSA national partners to catalyze comprehensive and efficient researchteams of the future.Project Summary/Abstract Page 716Contact PD/PI: Berglund, Lars F Inst-Career-Dev-001 (821)INSTITUTIONAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT CORE: KL2BIBLIOGRAPHY AND REFERENCES CITED1.
