UK CARES Career Development Program
The University of Kentucky Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences (UK CARES) Career Development Program is coordinated in a partnership with the Administrative Core and led Dr. Kevin Pearson.
The mission of the Career Development Program is to promote collaboration among basic, clinical, and population scientists; support early stage investigators in developing diverse professional skills; and to attract mid-level investigators and scientists in other fields through opportunities to focus on environmentally-induced diseases.
The goals of the UK CARES Career Development Program are:
- Promote career development of early stage investigators.
- Provide opportunities for mid-level investigators to focus on environmental health-related research.
- Foster collaborations among investigators working in basic, clinical and population science fields.
- Develop scientific enrichment activities for all UK CARES investigators.
