Description:

The NIH Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP) allows participants to take advantage of the best of two worlds - the academic environment of a university and the breadth and depth of research at the NIH. The goal is to create a different kind of graduate experience, one that focuses on training the next generation of scientific leaders by emphasizing communication and collaboration skills, integration of information, and interdisciplinary investigation.

At the NIH, PhD students work in a highly collaborative research environment with leading scientists and clinicians. They share the NIH campus with the largest translational research hospital in the nation. They explore areas such as bioinformatics, biophysics, epidemiology, immunology, cell and molecular biology, neuroscience, health sciences, structural biology, sensory and communication neuroscience, molecular pathology, biobehavioral research, and developmental biology.

All graduate students at the NIH are part of the GPP and can take advantage of the graduate student community and career and professional development services supported by the Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE).
