The Duke CTSA KL2 is a mentored research career development program for junior faculty and fellows transitioning to faculty positions who are conducting clinical and translational research. Scholars are awarded 75% protected effort for 3 years, $20,000/year for research expenses, and $2,500/year for travel to professional meetings.

The next round of applications will be due on December 15, 2017, with a July 2018 start date. Three new scholars will be selected. An important goal of the CTSA KL2 is to increase the diversity of the research workforce. The program has committed to supporting at least 50% under-represented minorities with the KL2.
