NIA-funded Predoctoral Research Training in Aging

The predoctoral research training program in aging at the University of Florida has two components. First, it is a selective mentored research training program, open to pre-doctoral students at UF who are interested in research careers in aging. Second, for a selected subset (typically 2 to 6 students per year) of trainees, the program also provides stipend and tuition support. As an NIH T32 program, the program is meant to train students with research career aspirations, and it will fund those judged to be most promising for such careers.  Applicants are reviewed by our Graduate Research and Training Committee (GRTC). All students, regardless of funding status, are fully active thtrees in the program.

This training program supports close contact with a doctoral advisor, regular colloquia and professional development seminars conducted by leading national gerontologists, and a strong emphasis on methodological training. Some students (up to six students per year) will also receive funding from our T32 award, which will include stipend/tuition/travel support, along with some training expense allowance.
