Post-Baccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award

This program provides the opportunity for recent college graduates to spend a year engaged in biomedical investigation in National Human Genome Research Institute laboratories.

Sponsor: National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH

Applications for this program are accepted throughout the calendar year. While in this program, participants work side-by-side with some of the leading scientists in the world in an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research. In addition, during their tenure in the program, Post-Bac IRTA fellows are also expected to initiate the application process for graduate or medical school. The duration of the program is normally one year, but the fellowship can be extended for an additional year provided the performance of the trainee is satisfactory and continued support by the laboratory is available.
