“The protected time, training, mentorship, and support I received through CTSI’s KL2 Scholars Career Development Program has had a significant impact on my research career. CTSI’s support enabled me to secure an R01 grant to continue my research, which ultimately aims to improve quality of life for nursing home residents.”
- Dr. Tetyana Shippee of the School of Public Health
At the CTSI Poster Session and Reception on Sept. 27, CTSI bestowed awards to outstanding research mentors.
CTSI has accepted 15 student and faculty researchers into its research career development programs. Programs are designed to advance researchers through the career development continuum, from the undergraduate experience to an independent research career as a faculty member.
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) recognized nine researchers for having outstanding posters and presentations at the annual CTSI Poster Session and Reception held January 20 at McNamara Alumni Center.
At the CTSI Poster Session on Jan. 20, CTSI honored University of Minnesota Associate Professor Lynn Eberly, MS, PhD, with the first CTSI Biostatistician Mentor of the Year Award, which recognizes outstanding biostatistical mentors.
Mentees praised Dr. Eberly for her keen intellect, dedication, patience, thoughtfulness, and ability to help her mentees become successful independent researchers.
CTSI will honor James Cloyd III, PharmD, with its 2015 Mentor of the Year Award on Jan. 20, 2016 during its Annual Scholar Poster Session and Reception at the McNamara Alumni Center.
CTSI is accepting nominations for its Biostatistician Mentor Awards until Thursday, Nov. 12.
On Thursday evening, CTSI honored Rebecca Shlafer, PhD, with the second annual Outstanding Junior Mentor award (shown at right: Laurel Davis, a mentee of Dr. Shlafer, accepts the award on her behalf).
CTSI recently appointed Kola Okuyemi, MD, MPH, as Director of the K to R01 Transition to Independence Program, a two-year career development program that aims to place junior investigators with K awards further on the path to be competitive for R01 awards.
He will also assist in recruiting scholars from diverse backgrounds and promoting diversity-related activities for CTSI as a whole.
“The Undergraduate Research Program was a springboard into my research career. I gained a strong understanding of how to conduct public health studies, along with a mindset that’s focused on making a real-world impact with research.”
