Training Grant Support

The School of Medicine recognizes that applications and renewals of NIH sponsored Training Grants (T32, R25, etc.) are a sizable undertaking.

To help better support applications and renewals of these grants our Offices of: Academic Affairs, Graduate Program in Life Sciences, Medical Education, Postdoctoral Scholars and Research Affairs are working in collaboration to provide better access to the data needed to complete the tables associated with these grants.

Currently, the following are available:

Data Tables

Copies of the previously submitted data tables for training grants are available to faculty and their support staff.

To obtain access:

  • Email and explain why you are requesting access
    • EX: You are a faculty member working on a Training Grant application, etc.
      • Staff requesting access must copy the PI she or he will be working on behalf of
    • Each request must include a signed copy of the last page of the University’s FERPA training presentation.
  • When approved for access you will receive an invitation to a shared set of folders housed in the School’s OneDrive system.

Additionally, data on PhD applicant pools and other helpful information including a “help manual” constructed by Dr. Stefanie Vogel and Ms. Tanya Hopkins are maintained here.
