These awards provide high-quality, multidisciplinary training in clinical and translational research to promote the career development of future clinical investigators.

The Clinical Research Training Center, a component of Wash-ington University’s Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, provides a cohesive and supportive infrastructure to foster clinical research training and career development for predoctoral students, house staff, postdoctoral fellows and faculty. Active mentoring, hands-on research experiences and formal didactic programs in clinical research methods leading to a certificate or master’s degree in clinical investigation are core components of the program.
