NIH Training Program
Stem Cell Engineering represents the convergence of the biological and physical sciences, engineering, and ethics and law. Our interdisciplinary National Institutes of Health-funded Stem Cell Biological Engineering Training Program (T32 GM 098218) was established in 2011 to formally organize new training opportunities in stem cell biological engineering, while dissolving traditional academic barriers to interdisciplinary graduate science education. Fellows are supported for 24 months, in the 2nd and 3rd years of their doctoral studies.
This program provides predoctoral training opportunities in the biology of stem cells and its application to the enhancement of human health. Program participants work at the interface of biology and engineering, preparing them to be leaders in academia and industry. A three-month industrial internship experience is a key facet of this program.
