Training the next generation of life course researchers.

The LCT-RN is committed to equipping researchers with the tools to design, implement, and evaluate life course interventions. We support those who are 1) beginning their research careers, 2) interested in shifting their work into Life Course Translational Research, and 3) practitioners working directly with individuals, families, and communities.

Life Course Research Visual Toolkit

The NCATS Life Course Research Visual Toolkit, Charting the Life Course: An Interdisciplinary Blueprint, serves to increase knowledge about innovative life course research methods by providing content that is widely available and accessible to researchers across multiple disciplines through both longer and shorter visual formats presented by national and international experts in life course research.
