The NIH-funded training program is currently in the 37th year of funding. This training grant provides invaluable support to the Ph.D. training program. Over 70 mentors in 13 basic science and clinical departments at Vanderbilt University provide research opportunities for our trainees.
In addition, our partnership with the Lipscomb College of Pharmacy provides for Pharm.D., Ph.D. training and access to specialized coursework and training in drug metabolism and pharmaceutics. Former trainees hold positions in academia, industry, and government agencies. Our goal is to train leaders in science. Graduate students interested in joining the training program should contact Dr. Barnett directly.
