Team Science

An innovative feature of the UF MD-PhD Training Program is the opportunity to participate in a TL1 Team Science Program sponsored by the CTSA Program.

PhD students, including MD-PhD Scholars, are encouraged to apply for TL1 positions on two or more person teams in which partners pursuing their PhD in different Colleges help each other design additional “team specific aims.” The purpose is to expand the scope of their individual dissertation research projects via authentic interdisciplinary collaboration.

The TL1 has CTSA funds supplemented by several departments and colleges to support 8-10 TL1 pre-doctoral fellowships per year with funding for two years.
