A training grant provides scholarships, fellowships or stipends to students for research. Training grants provide graduate students with a comprehensive education and research experience that is like no other. Graduate students who are on training grants often get to experience deeper relationships with industry through internships, deeper understanding of a specific field all while building their life experiences as well as their CV!
The Petit Institute is home to the following training grants:
NIH Biomaterials or GT BioMat
The objective of the GTBioMAT program is to provide advanced and integrated training for pre-doctoral science and engineering students in the rational design, synthesis, and application of the next generation of integrative biomaterials.
NIH Cell and Tissue Engineering
The objective of this Biotechnology training program is to provide advanced and integrated training for predoctoral engineering students in cell and tissue engineering and to develop future leaders for the biotechnology industries.
IGERT Stem Cell Biomanufacturing
The NSF-funded Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program in Stem Cell Biomanufacturing was awarded to Georgia Tech in 2010 to educate and train the first generation of Ph.D. students in the translation and commercialization of stem cell technologies for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
A Computational Biology and Biomedical Genomics
The Computational Biology and Biomedical Genomics Training Program provides training for a broad-based set of students with expertise in computational biology and predictive health, which encompasses research from integrative genomics to medical informatics.
