Curiosity and intellectual zeal fuel scientific discovery. Nowhere is this combination more evident than in our postdoctoral training programs.

Postdoctoral Training

The diversity of scientific programs at the NEPRC has provided an intellectually stimulating environment for the education and training of scientists at all levels of academic development. The Center's faculty has participated actively in postdoctoral training in conjunction with its strong research programs and clinical services. Postdoctoral trainees have historically received funding from federal and private research awards, institutional training grants, and competitive fellowships.

The Center also has hosted a formal NIH/NDPA T32 sponsored Training Program in Comparative and Experimental Pathology for over 35 years. This program has focused on training qualified veterinarians (DVM/VMD or equivalent) with US permanent residency status. The program has prepared hundreds of veterinarians for careers in biomedical research through instruction in the fundamental principles of pathology, broad exposure to state-of-the-art investigative tools utilized in diagnostic and experimental pathology, and experience in the performance of research projects. Upon completion of the program, trainees are qualified to take the certifying examination of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. Recent trainees have accepted positions as faculty members in academic institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry and in biotechnology.

New postdoctoral and T32 training opportunities will be limited due to the scheduled wind down and closure of the NEPRC on May 31, 2015.
