Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1)

The Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1) is an NCATS-funded training program for clinical fellows and postdoctoral trainees.

We have an open call for applications with a deadline of April 14, 2017. Read more here. 

This novel program seeks to promote interactions among both mentors and trainees in pediatrics and engineering in order to encourage creative thinking and new approaches in child-health research. The overall goal of the TL1 program is to address the need for well-trained researchers in pediatrics by attracting talented trainees, equipping them with the tools to succeed, and retaining their commitment to be independent investigators.

The program is led by led by William Schnaper, MD, professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Kidney Diseases and William Miller, PhD, professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
