To be eligible for enrollment, candidates must be early-career researchers. The ideal candidate will also meet the following criteria:
- Pre-doctoral students (Ph.D. students in their fourth year or later of scholarly training)
- Postdoctoral fellows
- Early-career scientists (scientists within 5 years of the receipt of their doctoral degree)
The goal of this program is to provide basic or wet bench scientists with the information that they need to successfully transition their research programs to the clinic. However, trainees and early-career scientists from other backgrounds (e.g., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. scientists) may also be eligible. These individuals should contact The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about eligibility prior to applying.
