Dear CCTSI research community,

The days are getting longer, spring is officially here and there is much to look forward to.

Registration is open for several of our short courses developed specifically for researchers, including Communicating Your Science to the Public. Uniquely tailored mock study section grant review opportunities are available such as the Pre-K and Pre-R grant review sessions. LOIs are due April 8 and April 4 respectively. Our brand new Pre-F program helps students and postdocs prepare and submit successful applications to the NIH for their individual NRSA (F30, F31, F32) fellowships. Applications are due May 15. We are offering a “Tips and Tricks” Fellowship Seminar offering a practical guide to NRSA Fellowship applications on May 3.

Our mission is to support early-career researchers as they grow their careers. And though we are excited for what lies ahead this year, we took some time to look back at highlights from 2023. If you want to learn more about the many aspects of our CTSA hub, take a moment to review our 2023 report.

We recently had the opportunity to hold Town Halls at Colorado State University and National Jewish Health. We aim to engage with researchers across all our partnering institutions. If you missed these meetings in person, you may watch the recording of our first session, held on the Anschutz Medical Campus, to learn about the many CCTSI resources and ways we support clinical and translational science and research, early-career faculty and train the next generation of researchers. 

All the best,
