TL1 - Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child & Adolescent Health

The Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child & Adolescent Health (TL1) is a National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS)-funded training program that seeks to promote interactions among both mentors and trainees in pediatrics and engineering to encourage creative thinking and new approaches in child-health research. The goal of the TL1 program is to address the need for well-trained scientists in pediatrics by attracting talented trainees, equipping them with the tools to succeed and retaining their commitment to be independent investigators.
