Education Overview

The Institute for Environmental Medicine is dedicated to our postdoctoral training program in lung cell and molecular biology. We train fellows with diverse backgrounds who are interested in the principles of molecular, cellular, and organ physiology. Institute faculty are at the forefront of their fields and receive over $4,000,000 in research funding. State-of-the-art facilities, resources, and equipment are available for training and scientific discovery.

The intellectual and collegial environment of the Institute is ideal for student education. Seminars, journal clubs, lab meetings, Respiration Research Retreat and informal departmental gatherings provide trainees with opportunities to participate in research discussions and to establish the collaborations necessary for interdisciplinary training.
