K-to-R Transition Program


Gail Daumit, MD, MHS Professor of Medicine The “K-to-R” Transition Program was implemented in response to the growing need to enhance the transition from mentored career development awards (K’s) to independent awards (R’s). The ICTR’s Training, Education, & Career Development Programs has partnered with the Office of Faculty Development and the Professional Development and Career Office to provide oversight, support, resources, and networking opportunities for K-level mentored awardees.  To address some of the needs and overcome the barriers identified, this program links available resources for preparation of future R grant submissions, including individual or small group mentoring and an annual retreat for […]

Science: Out of the Box


Why is cancer so hard to treat—and what new strategies are researchers considering? What do cells do when their DNA gets tangled up? How do brain cells build connections to each other? Our researchers use toys to help answer these and other questions in the video series Science: Out of the Box. Immunotherapy and Antibodies | Slaying Lung Cancer   Medical oncologist Julie Brahmer, M.D., explains how immunotherapy works as a tool in treating lung cancer. Using toys and finger paints, she demonstrates how the immune system attacks cancer cells. Dr. Brahmer discusses why immunotherapy is a promising new treatment […]
