Each Center is required to train fellows during the life of the award. These fellowships should include a basic, clinical and/or translational research experience. The Center must identify a Training Director to oversee the fellows and their training program.
The Training Director must provide a letter and biosketch, as outlined below.
Note: The applicant cannot submit his/her application without the Training Director’s documents; therefore, it is important that the Training Director meet the applicant's deadline. Send the Training Director’s documents electronically to the applicant. The applicant will upload the documents to his/her application. A document that exceeds the page limit will be rejected by our electronic application system.
