The University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) has a large number of active NIH Training Programs that support predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in the life sciences. These training grants focus on areas of recognized research excellence at the UMSOM and are an important source of funding for postdocs and/or students.
If you see a T32 that might be a good match for your research area, be sure to reach out to the director and/or administrator of the training grant for more information. Please note: The NIH requires US citizenship or a permanent residency to be funded by these training grants.
