Application Procedure

Applications are now closed. The extended application deadline was Thursday, May 21, 2020. Applicants will be notified of their status in mid-/late-July. 

Selection of Participants

The Program Committee will review and accept applications from predoctoral students (who will be in their fourth year or later at the time of this workshop), postdoctoral fellows, early-career scientists (those who are not postdoctoral fellows and who received their PhD on or after April 2015), and a limited number of senior scientists beyond the postdoctoral level (from academia or industry) who are in transition to translational research. Applicants are invited from academia and industry. The committee will select a group of 50 individuals and base its decisions on materials submitted by the applicant and by the applicant’s sponsor (mentor, program supervisor, or department head). Applications will be evaluated both for the information they supply about the candidate and the assurances they provide for institutional support for transitioning into a career in translational research. Note that selection of workshop applicants will be conducted on a competitive basis and not all applicants can be accepted due to limited space. Unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to reapply the following year. Applicants will be notified of their status in mid-/late-July.
