IRACDA is a training grant for postdocs from all backgrounds, but women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply “to develop a diverse group of highly trained scientists to address the nation’s biomedical research needs.” The application required a partner institution which in this case is CSULA (California State University, Los Angeles). Selected fellows are expected to dedicate 25% of their time to teaching including training at UCLA and a mentored teaching experience at CSULA.
It took a herculean effort by many people to secure this award. Please join us in congratulating Mike and Tracy for leading that effort! UCLA is one of only four institutions in California to have received the award.
