NIH/T35 Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Program

The College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University established the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Training Program (IBRTP) for veterinary students to provide research training in a multidisciplinary environment. Trainees will complete a 10 week full time research experience, prepare a poster and oral research presentation, and present their research at a national meeting. Research projects will be guided by an interdisciplinary mentorship team. Disciplines include: Clinical Sciences, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Genetics and Genomics, Biomedical and Biological Engineering and Textiles, Statistics and Bioinformatics, Epidemiology, Computational Biology and Population Biology, Artificial Intelligence and Modeling, Regenerative Medicine, Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Nanotechnology.

Program requirements: A weekly seminar series on topics related to research ethics and scientific and professional development; participation in an annual CVM research symposium; and participation in the National Veterinary Scholars Symposium.  These requirements are in addition to those associated with a student’s particular research training experience.

Eligibility: Any first or second year veterinary student in good academic standing. Trainees will be expected to have prior biomedical research experience (including those students with an MS or PhD degree) but this is not a requirement.

Funding:  $6,700 stipend and support to fund travel and participation in the National Veterinary Scholars Symposium in August of the summer you participate in the program. The primary mentor should have sufficient funds for the research project.
