NIGMS supports research training in clinical pharmacology through a number of mechanisms. These programs emphasize the application of modern biomedical sciences—such as pharmacology, biostatistics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenetics, chemistry, molecular medicine and cellular and molecular biology—to the study of drug action in humans. The programs are intended to produce a cadre of clinician-scientists with the ability to conduct basic and applied research in the laboratory and/or clinical setting.
Individual Postdoctoral FellowshipsSupport for up to 3 years of postdoctoral training in broad areas related to the scientific programs of NIGMS. Awarded to individuals with a Ph.D., M.D., D.D.S., D.M.D., D.O., D.V.M., Pharm.D. or comparable degree.
Institutional Postdoctoral Training GrantsGrants to institutions, which then select trainees. Primarily for trainees with M.D. or Pharm.D. degrees, but may also include individuals with other professional degrees.
Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Awards in Clinical PharmacologySupport for 3 to 5 years of supervised research and study for clinically trained professionals, primarily those with an M.D. or Pharm.D. degree, to encourage the development of outstanding academic physician-scientists.
