Graduate Training Program in Comparative Medicine
Principal Investigator: John Parker
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
The Comparative Medicine Program combines the very best that Cornell offers in the form of didactic graduate-level instruction, faculty supervision and training related activities. Provision would be made for trainees to follow one of two tracks, one geared to basic research and one to a career in translational science. In each case, training would be structure to ensure the orderly progression of scholars to independence. The proposed program combines independent, faculty-guided research with formal didactic instruction in cell and molecular biology and biostatistics, career counseling, and a variety of professional enrichment activities calculated to develop the trainees' critical capacity, communication and teamwork skills.
