Education & Training Programs

The TNPRC offers training and educational opportunities ranging from summer undergraduate fellowships through postdoctoral training as well as research opportunities for visiting scientists. The opportunities for veterinary students and veterinarians interested in a research career are particularly diverse and include short-term clinical externships and summer fellowships for veterinary students, laboratory animal medicine and pathology residency programs, and an NIH-funded T32 Institutional Training Program in Experimental Medicine and Pathology. The latter two programs are collaborations with the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine (LSU SVM). In addition, the TNPRC and LSU SVM are partners in an NIH-funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) program which provides additional mentored research training to facilitate the academic development and independent funding of junior faculty.
