The CCTS is pleased to announce the newest cohort for the Predoctoral Clinical/Translational Research (TL1) Program. The TL1 trainees are predoctoral students finishing their second year in a health-related program. This full-time program provides a year of focused time for trainees to develop projects related to reducing health disparities and/or diseases that disproportionately affect the Deep South. In addition, fellows will complete the core curriculum, get experience writing a manuscript, and present their research at a national conference.

The new cohort represents CCTS Partners Auburn University, LSU Health Sciences Center, Tulane University, University of Alabama, University of Alabama at Birmingham, and University of South Alabama.
