On a monthly basis, we host an informal gathering known as the CCTS Forum, which offers colleagues an opportunity to learn the latest on a variety of clinical and translational science topics. The focus changes each month to help foster creative and unbridled discussion among a wide range of people from across UAB as well as the broader CCTS Partner Network. 

Getting to K and Beyond

WHERE: Pittman Center for Advanced Medical Studies (PCAMS), which is situated in the heart of the University of Alabama at Birmingham campus. 

WHEN: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 (hors-d'oeuvres & refreshments will be provided)

TIME: 4:00-5:30 pm (Zoom Available)

Are you a new faculty member, early career scholar, or a postdoc writing a grant or have recently submitted a K-application? Are you ready to pitch your pilot data for extramural funding for an R-application? Learn about the resources, opportunities and tips to secure your NIH K grant (or equivalent). Then hear from actual investigators who have been successfully funded with the help of CCTS.
