Immunological Mechanisms of Disease T32 Training Program

The IMDTP is co-lead by Drs Jeff Rathmell and Amy Major and aims to provide training for pre- and post-doc fellows in basic immunology and human disease.  Each trainee has a basic science and a clinical mentor relevant to their research area to allow the development of an integrated view of human immunology and the immune system in disease.  Each year the IMDTP supports three pre-doc trainees via an NIH T32 from the NIAID and an additional pre-doc trainee supported from the VI4.  The IMDTP also supports two post-doctoral trainees.
