Also announced was the appointment of six early-career faculty members to the OCTRI KL2 Program, which supports investigators in their transition to research independence. The mission of this program is to identify and support promising faculty who may benefit from OCTRI support and resources in their efforts to obtain independent research funding.

The Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program supports these training awards, which combine formal course work with direct research experience.

  1. This is great to see, but I have noticed a bothersome ‘glitch’ in this software platform. Routinely, the information listed at the bottom as ‘Related’ is way way way way out of date and often no longer correct. I assume the program uses some algorithm (can you say artificial intelligence?) to pull this information from the archives, but it ends up confusing rather than illuminating. Just IMHO…see the note above about octri in 2013….

  2. @DavidEllison Thanks for calling this out — I absolutely agree. We’re meeting with the digital gurus in the coming weeks and I’ll ask them if there are ways to adjust that feed, or disable it. Seems a lot of commercial news sites (not the Guardian) have moved away from ‘related’ stories to ‘popular’ or ‘recent’ … Thanks for putting this back on my radar.
