Georgetown – Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) TL1 Training Program in Translational Biomedical Science (TBS)

The NIH TL1 funded Pre- and Post-doctoral Training Program in Translational Biomedical Science provides an individualized career development plan that includes: 1) didactic education in human health and disease along with technical skill development and rigorous research methodology; 2) mentored experiential learning in clinical medicine; 3) dual-mentored research training in preclinical and clinical research; 4) individualized career guidance; and, 5) training in team science and leadership skills.

Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience Training Grant T32

The NIH funded Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience (IPN) training grant at Georgetown University provides trainees, who are pursuing their PhD in Neuroscience, with broad-based interdisciplinary training relevant to understanding a variety of diseases and disorders of the nervous system. Through didactic coursework, laboratory research, and career development training, the students supported through this training mechanism are prepared to make important contributions toward preventing and curing a spectrum of neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as autism, epilepsy, schizophrenia, dementias, communicative disorders, and addiction. Trainees participate in a seminar series, national professional meetings, journal clubs, intensive laboratory research, and training in several essential professional skills (writing and reviewing manuscripts, grantsmanship, mentorship, teaching, conflict resolution, career choices, oral presentations.)

Neural Injury and Plasticity (NIP) Training Grant T32

The Training Program in Neural Injury and Plasticity (NIP) grew from the Center for Neural Injury and Recovery (CNIR) and represents a unique and highly collaborative endeavor at Georgetown University (GU). Since its inception in 2001, the NIP Training Program has provided support for many predoctoral students during their thesis period and postdoctoral trainees. Our predoctoral students are enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience (IPN) at Georgetown University and represent a highly competitive group of applicants.

The Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA Institutional Research Training Grant in Tumor Biology T32

The Tumor Biology Training program brings together about 60 faculty members from Basic Science and Clinical Departments, as well as the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, combining excellence in basic and clinical cancer research, as well as research in cancer prevention and control). A combination of formal courses, seminars and ongoing collaborative research projects bring together faculty and trainees in a unified doctoral program committed to providing quality education in cancer biology, prevention and therapy.
