GSBS Writing Studio Institutional Training (T) Grant Support & Resources

National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Training (T) Grants are competitive grants awarded to institutions to develop or enhance research training opportunities for predoctoral and/or postdoctoral trainees in specific areas of biomedical research.  One T grant can support multiple trainees.  The awards are very competitive, and UTMB current holds 12 of these prestigious awards reflecting the quality and success of our training, mentoring, and graduate programs on campus. For information on any specific T grants, please contact the individual program or PI. 

A current list of UTMB "T" grants can be found here:   List of UTMB T Grants

Additionally, certain UTMB faculty also participate in 3 external T32 grants housed through the Gulf Coast Consortia (GCC).  Details can be found here (Note: The 3 grants UTMB faculty are involved with include the "Biomedical Informatics & Data Science", "Training Program in Antimicrobial Resistance", and "Houston Area Molecular Biophysics Program" grants listed)GCC T32s with UTMB Faculty
