T32 Trainees Over the Years

Training grants support the college's program of preparing T32 trainees who are dedicated to becoming the next generation of academicians and clinician scientists.

The grants provide training and financial support to individuals while also directly benefitting the college’s graduate and clinician-scientist faculty by expanding mentoring and training opportunities. John Sheridan, PhD, professor and training grant director in the Division of Biosciences, secured the College of Dentistry’s first T32 training grant from the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) of the National Institutes of Health in 2001.
