Awardees and their research mentors reflect the scope of the ICTR partners. While scholars are drawn primarily from the UW Schools of Medicine & Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine, the College of Engineering, and Marshfield Clinic, successful applicants have been affiliated with almost all of the UW-Madison schools and colleges. Programs include a TL1 Pre-Doctoral Award, a TL1 Post-Doctoral Award, a KL2 Scholars Program, and the AHEAD Pilot Award. In addition to these offerings, ICTR also supports Certificate Programs in Fundamentals of Clinical Research and Clinical and Community Outcomes Research.
