Jeff Grabowski has been accepted for a year of CTSI (Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute) predoctoral funding for 2012-2013 through Indiana University.
Their notification latter stated: "It was an extremely competitive process this year with 31 predoctoral applications. In addition to the merit review process which was the predominant criterion, we also had to balance other factors such as diverse research within different disciplines and schools, representation from all four campuses, and some balance between T1 (bench to the clinical setting) and T2 (clinical studies to the community applications) types of translational research."
As a CTSI predoctoral trainee, Jeff will receive a stipend for July 2012-June 2013, with eligibility for a second year of funding based up on his first year's progress.
The Indiana CTSI is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
