How a KL2 Program Award Helped My career
Comments from Past TRI KL2 Recipients
Without the KL2 program, I wouldn’t have had the protected time to submit grants and manuscripts. It was truly the launching pad for my UAMS research career!Keneshia Bryant-Moore, Ph.D., RN, FNP-BC
The KL2 program was instrumental in my career development, allowing me the protected time I needed to immerse myself in my scholarly development. I was able to take courses to develop essential skills, benefit from mentorship across departments, and connect with other researchers and collaborate on projects.Sufna John, Ph.D.
Without the support and mentoring provided by the KL2 grant at UAMS, I would not have received a NIH NIAID K08. This grant provides awardees a roadmap for successful NIH submissions while further helping them navigate institutional requirements for excellent research.Joshua Kennedy, M.D.
For me it was, in particular, protected research time and having funds to do some research that helped me a lot to advance my career. The seminars helped me to see what resources are available at UAMS (particularly statistical support) and I enjoyed our meetings to get input from my peers or the higher- ups.Carolina Schinke, M.D.
The KL2 program provided me the protected time I needed to establish an independent line of research at UAMS and key skills to advance my pursuit of external funding. I am very grateful for my time as a KL2 scholar.Taren Swindle, Ph.D.
