Our Training Program in Neurodegeneration (TPiN) is supported by an NIH training grant, T32NS095775.  This is a focused program for predoctoral students in basic and translational approaches to neurodegenerative disease, generally supporting students in the third and fourth year of graduate school. A primary goal is to expose students to biological mechanisms and research approaches used across neurodegenerative disease, rather than single-disease training. Our core philosophy is to provide a robust training pathway in translational research to enable the discovery of cures of neurodegenerative diseases. This unique emphasis will enable our students to take leading roles in therapeutic discovery across the spectrum of different skill sets and enterprises which are required to deliver the vitally needed treatments of the future.

A call for applications is issued in the spring of each year.
