K Club

The Institute for Clinical and Translational Science is sponsoring a new K Club for any faculty planning to submit for a K, R, or VA equivalent within the next 12 months.

The intent of the club is to provide support to junior faculty who aspire to become future independent scholars. Our goal is to help faculty submit successful career development award applications. 

The faculty leader of the group will be Alex Bassuk, MD, PhD, professor of pediatrics and neurology, with frequent attendance by additional successful clinical and translational research faculty.

Space will be limited. 


The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 10.

Meetings will take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in C44-A GH (Elevator BW, Level 4). 

September 10

The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 10 where the participants will begin to discuss the desired format for this year’s club. 

September 24

On Tuesday, September 24 we will have Mark Santillan, MD, PhD, visit the club to talk about persistence through early career funding rejections.
