Research Training Opportunities

The MSTAR program offers an 8-12 week intensive experience in aging research for first-year medical students. The goals are to include trainees from diverse backgrounds, offer individualized, structured training that includes a mentor, a research project, didactics and supplementary experiences and promotes a sense of identity and membership within the field of aging research among other things.
Funded by the National Institute on Aging, this program provides training for pre- and postdoctoral researchers interested in studying the health of older minorities, particularly older Hispanics.
The Sealy Center on Aging has pre- and post-doctoral fellowship positions for training in research focused on the comparative effectiveness of health care provided to older adults, with an emphasis on cancer related outcomes.
