Matt Kottmann, MD, a CTSI KL2 scholar from 2010-2012, received a highly competitive Parker B. Francis Fellowship grant. Like the KL2 award, the Parker B. Francis Fellowship supports junior investigators on their path to independence. Matt’s project for the CTSI KL2 was “Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor Ligands and Pulmonary Fibrosis.” The CTSI KL2 Career Development Program supports junior investigators for 2 years who are interested in a career in clinical and translational research. The next RFA for the CTSI KL2 award will be released in September 2013. More information on Matt’s award can be found at the Research @URMC blog.
