The University of Maine Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering is home to a T32 training grant entitled “Transdisciplinary predoctoral training in biomedical science and engineering” from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. The purpose of this grant is to support promising predoctoral students who have an interest in transdisciplinary research and team science.
Student support and mentorship
This program will support predoctoral students who perform research at UMaine or any of the partner institutions, including Maine Medical Center Research Institute, The Jackson Laboratory, Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, and University of New England. The program establishes a co-mentorship model, with the opportunity for the student to gain relevant research training in complementary research fields, such as cell and molecular biology, genetics, computational biology, engineering, biomedicine, and bioinformatics.
