KL2 Visiting Scholars

January 18, 2022
SCTR KL2 Program

Over the next three months, SCTR will host three KL2 Visiting Scholars Grand Rounds Lectures.

The KL2 Visiting Scholars Program matches KL2 scholars with faculty members at selected CTSA hubs to network and share ideas. The program culminates in a Grand Rounds lecture, which is available to the entire CTSA consortium.

MUSC is part of a consortium of academic health systems funded by the NIH to facilitate clinical and translational research. The MUSC CTSA, called the South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research (SCTR) Institute, has developed a robust system to support clinical and translational researchers, including the mentoring offered to early career faculty through the KL2 program. This program aims to train both clinical and non-clinical research scientists through the shared expertise and guidance of program faculty and mentors to support research independence.

This year, SCTR will be hosting three visiting KL2 scholars from across the country.
