PRE-DOCTORAL T32 TRAINING PROGRAM
 
Traditionally, researchers have been involved in only a single aspect of 
medicine: They have either cared for patients or conducted basic science

can be used more effectively in patients, CTSI leaders will launch a new 
program aimed at training clinical and translational
science (CTS) investigators....

CLINICAL RESEARCH COORDINATOR TRAINING AND CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS
 
A clinical trial aimed at finding a new therapy or a cure for a disease
