Schizophrenia & Psychosis-Related Disorders
T32 Training Grant
Accepting applicants for two-year training fellowship
Open positions starting July 1, 2021
All trainees are educated on the translational perspective of the MPRC and provided mentors and didactic training in both clinical psychopathology and basic neuroscience. The multidisciplinary T32 Fellowship has successfully trained more than 30 fellows and helped them transition to productive, well-rounded, translationally-focused scientists.
Our Research Center
The mission of the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center (MPRC) is the creative acquisition of new knowledge on schizophrenia spectrum-related pathologies with the goal of understanding etiology and pathophysiology and addressing unmet therapeutic needs.
T32 Multidisciplinary Training Program
The goal of our program is to prepare post-doctoral trainees from multiple disciplines (MD psychiatrists, PhDs in clinical and experimental psychology, neuroscience, other biomedical sciences including DVM, engineering, and PharmDs) for an independent or research-intensive career in the area of translational mental health research.
We implement a multi-disciplinary, team approach, with two mentors working together to guide each trainee. The primary mentor has daily contact and assures project support where the mentee can be lead investigator on at least one project. Each trainee also has a secondary mentor. Formal and informal meetings with the secondary mentor provides assurance that fellows understand translational science and how it applies to the mentee’s projects.
Four parallel means of training are implemented in the training program: Mentored Research, Coursework, Career Training and Additional Customized Educational Activities.
