Translational Diagnostics Advanced Training Grant

This grant provides funding up to $5,000 to support travel and living expenses during the training period. Awardees and/or their institutions should expect to cover any travel costs that exceed the amount awarded.

CAP Junior Members (pathology residents) explore how promising molecular pathology and oncology discoveries are translated into companion diagnostic assays as they gain understanding of the pathologist’s role in industry.

Under the direction of Ventana’s Chief Medical Officer, Eric E. Walk, MD, FCAP, recipients tailor their experience to explore R&D innovation, scientific and clinical affairs, digital pathology and whole slide imaging, platform and instrumentation development, and/or tissue sample management.


All CAP Junior Members (at least one year of residency complete) may apply. All applicants will be considered regardless of age, race, gender, national origin, or religion.

In addition to application process details, selection considers the candidate’s molecular pathology background and interest in molecular pathology.

Within 30 days of completing on-site training, recipients are required to submit an overview (500-700 words) of the experience, along with a photo and a short evaluation form.
