T32: Medical Student Research Training Supplement
Most recent NIDDK funding announcement: NOT-DK-21-015
The MSRT at NIDDK
The Medical Student Research Training (MSRT) program provides mentored support for medical students interested in taking a year off from their medical school studies to work in an academic research lab. This support is via a supplement to a training grant (T32) in the appropriate area of research. A list of currently funded T32 program locations with the Principal Investigator contact information is available. Providing the opportunity for students to interrupt their medical school studies for up to 12 months to pursue a research project should help them solidify their decisions to pursue a research career, focus their research interests, and provide a background for future training and career development programs once they have completed their medical training.
