This interactive workshop will feature successful strategies for developing training programs supported by NIH Institutional Research Training Grants (T32). We will cover the essential components for a training program and strategies for applying for a T32 grant. Presenters will include Professor John Essigmann, director of the MIT Center for Environmental Health Sciences – a veteran T32 training program director.

John Essigmann is a professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Biological Engineering at MIT as well as the Director of the Center for Environmental Health Sciences  (CEHS). The mission of the MIT CEHS is to take a leadership role in facilitating and promoting research into the biological effects of exposure to environmental agents in order to understand and predict how such exposures affect human health. The CEHS has maintained a NIH-sponsored T32 grant in environmental toxicology for over 30 years.
