POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING PROGRAMS

The Division of Education directs training programs for Pennington Biomedical’s postdoctoral fellows. These programs are designed to train fellows to become productive research scientists capable of establishing independent scientific careers in biomedical research. Many of our fellows are sponsored by NIH Institutional Postdoctoral Training Grants.
