Graduate Training in Developmental Biology
This NIH funded training program is designed to train the next generation of developmental biologists to advance our understanding of developmental processes and thereby make it possible to harness the promise of stem cell therapy. The mission of the training program is to provide predoctoral trainees with the background knowledge, research skills, and career development activities needed today to successfully compete for academic and science-related careers. Specifically, the training aims to foster independent and critical thinking and the ability to initiate, lead and be an active participant in scientific discussions. At the same time, since launching a traditional independent academic research career is becoming increasingly difficult, the training also provides various professional developmental activities ranging from advanced writing seminars to opportunities for job-shadowing internships in the private or clinical sectors.
