UIC T32 DIABETES RESEARCH
TRAINING PROGRAM (UICDRTP)
Diabetes mellitus is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States and training the next generation of researchers is essential for developing new strategies to prevent and improve the treatment of diabetes. This program provides closely mentored post-doctoral training for MD and PhD trainees in diabetes research in a multidisciplinary environment that values diversity. The largest university in the Chicago area, UIC provides outstanding resources for training in basic, clinical, translational, and behavioral and community-based research targeting diabetes.
The goal of this program is to promotes the scientific and professional development of post-doctoral trainees aspiring to a career in diabetes research and medicine. Individualized training and career development plans are created with input from multidisciplinary mentoring teams. In addition to conducting mentored research, fellows participate in research seminars, journal clubs and work-in-progress meetings, and, when appropriate, complete graduate level courses pertinent to their research and career goals, including degree conferring programs (e.g., MS in Clinical and Translational Science, Health Informatics, etc). Fellows can focus their research and skill developments in basic/mechanistic, translational, clinical, behavioral and/or community-based research.
If you have specific questions about the process, please contact Terry Unterman, MD (Program Director) ([email protected]) who will answer your questions or forward your inquiry to the appropriate person.
Candidates from underrepresented minorities or with disabilities are highly encouraged to apply. Trainees must be citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the US. The University of Illinois at Chicago is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer.
