Trainees and other Program-associated PhD students participate in activities aimed at honing research strategies and techniques, especially as related to enhancing quantitative approaches to molecular and cellular biology, research rigor and reproducibility, critical thinking abilities, oral and written communication skills, and the responsible conduct of research, and in providing career development and networking activities. Trainees also receive in depth exposure to diverse careers in the national biomedical workforce, and assess their skills, interests and values relative to these careers through their Individual Development Plans (IDPs).

Please see the menu at the right to explore these activities in detail.
