Trainees will devote a minimum of two years to training in laboratory- or patient-based research (minimum 80% protected time). All trainees are expected to participate in weekly laboratory or clinical research meetings, to attend relevant divisional, departmental, center or institutional research-oriented conferences, and to take courses on Responsible Conduct of Research. Additional courses in study design, statistics, and project-specific disciplines (e.g. gut immunology) are strongly encouraged as is participation for post-doctoral trainees in coursework leading to the granting of an additional degree (MS, MPH, or PhD). 

Each year, this NIDDK-sponsored training program offers three pre-doctoral and four post-doctoral positions. U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status is required.
