Research Training in Physiological Adaptations to Stress: Preparation for 21st Century Biomedical Workforce

Cutting Edge Science: Improving Human Health

An NIH- funded (T32) interdisciplinary training program from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). We prepare students to address important research questions related to human health and disease. 

Physiological Adaptations to Stress is an NIH- funded (T32) interdisciplinary training program from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). We prepare students to address important research questions related to human health and disease. 

Value-added training in business entrepreneurship, regulatory issues and team dynamics through the Penn State MBA program, helps prepare students for emerging academic and nonacademic careers in the biomedical sciences. 

Faculty trainers are associated with the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences through the Colleges of Agricultural Sciences, Engineering, Health and Human Development, and Science.

Where Business Meets The Life Sciences

While science continues to deliver on the promise of bettering peoples' lives and pushing past the boundaries of current knowledge, scientists are often left behind. Our NIH-funded program changes that. Our program marries research related to human disease with solid business acumen. As science progresses, so must scientists.

Opportunities for Underrepresented Minorities and Students with Disability

The physiology program actively recruits students of diversity and disability. Senior undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience may consider attending the Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) and STEM open house. Accommodations are available for students with disabilities. Students are considered for predoctoral trainee fellowship support.
