Training grants

Integrative Training in Microbial Systems (ITiMS) training grant

The Integrated Training in Microbial Systems (ITiMS) program offers mentorship and financial support to University of Michigan doctoral students exploring the burgeoning field of microbiome studies. We aim to train future scientists who will design and implement novel prevention, diagnostic, and treatment strategies stemming from a deep understanding of the impact of microbial communities on human and environmental health.

National Institutes of Health - Genome Science Training Program

The Genome Science Training Program provides support for pre- and post-doctoral training at the interface of statistical, computational, and molecular genetics under support from the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Training support may be for up to three years. Pre-doctoral trainees can be new applicants to a relevant University of Michigan graduate program: Biostatistics; Human Genetics; Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; Epidemiology; Mathematics; Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology; or Statistics; or continuing Michigan students at any stage in their graduate studies. Pre-doctoral trainees are provided with full tuition (two semesters) and a stipend. Post-doctoral trainees receive the standard NIH stipend level, which is based on years of post-doctoral experience. Trainees also receive travel funds towards attendance at a scientific meeting. United States citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply.

National Institutes of Health – Genetics Training Grant Program

The Michigan Predoctoral Training Program in Genetics (GTP) is an interdisciplinary program that provides enriched genetics education for students receiving their Ph.D. degrees in six departments: Biological Chemistry, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB), Human Genetics, Microbiology and Immunology, Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB) and Pharmacology. The goal is to train investigators who can combine disciplinary expertise with the new research opportunities of the genomic era.

National Institutes of Health - Interdisciplinary Training Program in Infectious

The Interdisciplinary Training Program in Infectious Disease (IPID) provides support for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral training at the interface of epidemiology, microbiology, complex systems, mathematics, statistics, and medicine. It is supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health. Training support may be for up to three years. Pre-doctoral trainees can be new applicants to a relevant University of Michigan graduate program: Biostatistics; Human Genetics; Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; Epidemiology; Mathematics; Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology; or Statistics; or continuing Michigan students at any stage in their graduate studies. Pre-doctoral trainees are provided with full tuition (two semesters) and a stipend. Post-doctoral trainees receive the standard NIH stipend level, which is based on years of post-doctoral experience. Trainees also receive travel funds towards attendance at a scientific meeting. United States citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply.
