All applications for McLaughlin fellowships are subject to extensive peer review and must adhere to the required format and length.
All applicants must have a UTMB mentor who will assume scientific and ethical responsibility for the conduct of the research project and training of the fellow. The mentor and faculty of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences are responsible for developing a training environment for all McLaughlin pre-doctoral fellows. Likewise, the mentor must provide suitable research laboratory space for the McLaughlin post-doctoral fellow to conduct his/her scientific investigation. Should problems between McLaughlin fellows and faculty mentors arise that might hinder the fellow’s training, the McLaughlin Committee will evaluate the matter and take action to protect the rights of both the fellow and faculty member.
