The Chicago KUH FORWARD U2C/TL1 award brings together six public and private academic institutions in Chicago to propel KUH training and research. The U2C cooperative component provides central coordination and resources to support the Administrative, Professional Development, and Network Cores. The TL1 component supports the efforts of the Training Core to recruit and train pre- and post-doctoral fellows in KUH research.
