Training, Career Development, and Undergraduate Research Opportunities
The DBSVB supports the following training opportunity specific to its portfolio:
- Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Predoctoral Training Program in Systems Biology of Developmental Biology & Birth Defects: The objective of this announcement is to provide research training to predoctoral students interested in establishing research careers that use systems biology approaches to study developmental biology and the formation of structural birth defects.
- The Branch participates in NICHD-wide training [pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships] and career development opportunities. Visit Support for Training at Universities and Other Institutions (Extramural) for more information.
- The Branch also supports an active AREA (R15) program to give undergraduate students a meaningful and productive research experience in order to stimulate students into entering a graduate program in developmental biology.
- See Enhancing Developmental Biology Research at Undergraduate Institutions (R15) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-057.html. Although this specific opportunity has expired, the branch will be issuing a new opportunity announcement shortly. Please check back for additional information.
