The Molecular and Cell Biology Department has four current National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 training grants. The four training programs solicit potential trainee applications from faculty each year and candidates are evaluated, selected and appointed to each program in June.
The Molecular Basis of Cell Function (5T32GM007232-44) training program has a long-standing and defining principle: early and persistent emphasis on student training for an individually directed path to innovative research. Students are appointed to this training grant in Years 1 and 2.
The Genomics and Computational Biology (5T32HG000047-22) training program provides predoctoral training and research, emphasizing the cross-disciplinary nature of this rapidly advancing field. Students are appointed to this training grant in Years 2 and 3.
The Genetic Dissection of Cells and Organisms (1T32GM132022-01) training program provides advanced multidisciplinary PhD training in the design and execution of experimental genetics, quantitative analysis of genetic datasets, and understanding of the public issues and concerns among which their careers will play out. Students are appointed to this training grant in Years 2 and 3.
The Immunology and Pathogenesis (5T32AI100829-08) training program focuses on basic immunological mechanisms in the context of infections, cancer and immunopathology. Students are appointed to this training grant in Years 2 and 3.
