Training Program NIH/NIBIB T32EB021937

Available to pre-doctoral graduate students, it strives to translate dramatic laboratory breakthroughs in biomedical science into clinical use. It breaks down barriers to clinical translational research by supporting engineers to gain expert understanding in the treatment of human disease/dysfunction as well as training in the inception of novel technology-based platforms for studying and treating these systems.

An overview of the NIH/NIBIB T32EB021937 program can be found here.
