Providing training in regulatory science

The USC-TCORS Career Enhancement Core provides career building experiences structured to increase the combination of knowledge of regulatory issues and skills in a specific scientific area. Our trainees have excelled in generating TRS research portfolios and have secured related academic and professional positions upon completion of our robust training program, which includes:


  • Training and career enhancement opportunities for candidates at the pre-doctoral and post- doctoral levels, as well as for new or early stage faculty investigators
  • Structured mentorship and immersion into the various USC-TCORS research project teams to enhance training in the methodologies and disciplines employed by TRS researchers
  • Opportunities to develop independent research projects through competitive pilot project funding program
  • Trainees will benefit from both formal (i.e. coursework) and informal (i.e. speaker series, workshop, etc.) educational opportunities
  • Opportunities for week-long immersion experiences outside of the USC TCORS, including other TCORS and FDA CTP
