Indiana University

RELATED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

  • The Division of Clinical Pharmacology T32-Fellowship Program at the IU School of Medicine is dedicated to training physicians, pharmacists and related health-care professionals in clinical pharmacology. The two-year minimum curriculum is designed to generate independent investigators for careers in academia, government and industry. This fellowship program is one of the few in the United States funded by the National Institute of Health, certified by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology, and a recipient of the Center of Excellence in Clinical Pharmacology grant from the Pharmaceutical Manufacturer’s Foundation.
  • The IU School of Medicine Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics prepares trainees for successful careers in biomedical genetic research—in clinical medicine, industry and academics—through courses for medical students, masters students, and Ph.D. candidates as well as residency and fellowship training for post-graduates. The mission of the Medical and Molecular Genetics educational programs is to improve human health through research in genetics and apply the knowledge gained to further training and clinical service. This mission facilitates an understanding of the bench to bedside approach to medical science. Since the late 1960s, the department has trained more than 300 graduate students and fellows. The department offers a Ph.D. degree in Medical and Molecular Genetics, a Master of Science degree in Medical and Molecular Genetics, and a Master of Science degree with an emphasis in genetic counseling.

Mount Sinai

RELATED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

  • The Genetics and Data Science (GDS) multidisciplinary training area of the PhD. program in Biomedical Sciences, in conjunction with the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology, offers students educational and research opportunities to both expand on genetic research and the cutting edge of modern genomics as well as the integration of various disciplines of biomedical sciences with machine learning, network modeling, and big data analysis. Genetics and Data Science (GDS) is a multidisciplinary training area of the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Sciences at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Mount Sinai. GDS offers a number of graduate courses in genetics, genomics, genome analysis, and data science. The emphasis is on both the contribution of genetics to human disease and the application of biomedical data science to address disease detection, prediction, and treatment.
  •  

  • The Master of Science Program in Genetic Counseling is sponsored by Icahn School of Medicine's Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences, one of the largest departments of its kind in the world. Our faculty is renowned for cutting edge basic science research, as well as research in the diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders. Our large multidisciplinary center provides clinical and laboratory services to a wide range of culturally diverse patients and their families and we have a proven commitment to the community we serve.
  •  

  • The Graduate School offers Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. and Master’s degrees in Biomedical Sciences, Public Health, Genetic Counseling and Clinical Research. Ph.D. training is offered in eight multidisciplinary training areas, each of which represents an area of intense focus and growth for our basic science community.

Duke University

RELATED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

  • The Duke Post-Doctoral Training Program in Genomic Medicine Research (T32) provides training in a fast-growing field marked by the advent of new technologies, increased use of clinical genomic medicine, and large-scale federally- and privately-funded research efforts. The objectives of this training program are to provide postdoc trainees didactive training in the methods of clinical research and knowledge relevant to genomic medicine research; co-mentored research experience emphasizing interdisciplinary research; and training and experience to provide the necessary skills to enable the trainee to transition to an independent research program.
  •  

  • The Ph.D. program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics is an integrative, multi-disciplinary Ph.D. program that trains future leaders at the interdisciplinary intersection of quantitative and biomedical sciences. Students are trained to work independently and as part of collaborative teams. They learn to conduct research responsibly, with a commitment to data sharing and reproducible analysis, and they have professional development and teaching opportunities as part of their individual development plans.
  •  

  • The Duke University Program in Genetics and Genomics (UPGG) is an umbrella graduate training program that spans several basic science and clinical departments and bridges the Medical Center and the College of Arts and Sciences. For several decades, UPGG has served as an important forum for genetic training and education in model systems (bacteria, yeast, fungi, drosophila, zebrafish, mouse), population genetics, and human genetics.
  • The Duke Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), conducted under the auspices of the Duke University Graduate School and the Duke University School of Medicine, trains highly qualified students as physician-scientists, equipping them for solving problems in human disease using the approaches and techniques of the basic biomedical and social sciences. The program, which leads to both the MD and PhD degrees and typically takes seven to eight years for completion, combines graduate education in a basic biomedical science with the full clinical curriculum of the School of Medicine. One of forty-six such programs funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Duke MSTP was the fourth such program established by the NIH in 1966 and is widely regarded as one of the best.

University of Florida

RELATED EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES:

  • The Paradigm Training Program, or the Program for Applied Research and Development in Genomic Medicine, is funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Human Genomic Research Institute and will prepare trainees to be leaders in genomic medicine research and implementation. Trainees will receive didactic training tailored to their needs, extensive mentoring from world-renowned scientists, valuable clinical exposure in multiple areas of genomic medicine and stimulating career development opportunities in a robust, interdisciplinary research environment at UF.
  •
