As a training partner with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Immunology Department; the Integrated Biosciences (INBS) PhD Training Program in the College of Arts & Sciences at North Carolina Central University (NCCU) will carry out the role of administering the sub-agreement award. The INBS program will coordinate the selection and training of appointed doctoral level students. Specifically, we plan to select one doctoral student each year as either a new appointment or reappointment, and train these students in biomedical-related fields. The training includes didactic courses, laboratory research, both written and oral communication skills as well as professional development. The funding provided to the students from this sub-agreement will be used to support the trainees’ tuition, fees (ex. health insurance), as well as research and travel support. The INBS program and the College of Arts & Sciences at NCCU will also make certain that all training guidelines are adhered to and that all trainees are in fact working towards completion of the PhD degree.
