Short-Term Access to Research Training Program (START UP)

About the Program

The University of Pittsburgh Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) offered this summer research program for students enrolled in doctoral programs in the Schools of Dental Medicine, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh.

The summer program was 8 weeks and combined an individualized mentored research experience with group sessions focused on multidisciplinary translational research.

Before the start of the summer program, each student worked with a mentor to develop an initial research plan in the form of a "dummy abstract." Throughout the program, the student worked on his or her project. At the end of the program, the student presented the final project at a capstone event attended by all students and mentors.
