Office & Association

The BRET Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (BRET OPA) assists biomedical postdoctoral fellows during their training at Vanderbilt. Our office handles postdoctoral appointments and re-appointments and manages the health insurance plan for postdoctoral fellows paid by training grants or fellowships. We work closely with Vanderbilt Postdoctoral Association (VPA), a professional group open to all postdoctoral appointees at Vanderbilt University, the BRET Office of Career Development and Outcomes Analysis, the BRET Psychological Services, and the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (IGP). We support the Annual Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR) Training Day which is held each May.
