The T32 Training Program is a multidepartmental Advanced Research Training Program in Renal Science at UCLA. The program prepares MD, PhD, and MD/PhD trainees to meet the challenge of academic careers by providing training in basic, clinical, translational, and health services research in renal science. Upon graduation from the program, it is expected that trainees have the tools, knowledge, and skillset to be successful in academics and research.
The program provides a rich academic environment with participating faculty belonging to multiple departments and dedicated resources to continue to successfully conduct this training program in renal science. The training program provides up to 3 years of research training for MDs, and 1-2 years of training for PhDs. Non-degree and degree-granting tracks are offered by the training program. Trainees are closely mentored by the participating multidepartmental training faculty and are also exposed during their training to a structured educational programs through curricula, courses, workshops and seminars that differ depending on their chosen research track.
Participating faculty have extensive research expertise in immunology, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, biophysics, structural biology, genetics, biostatistics, clinical study design, and health services research. The research areas of the training faculty cover a wide range of collaborative research areas applicable to renal science and are organized into four major research-training affinity groups: 1) PBMB (Physiology, Biophysics, and Membrane Biology) Affinity Group; 2) MBRD (Molecular Basis of Renal Disease Affinity Group; 3) OTI (Organ Transplantation and Immunology) Affinity Group; and 4) HOR (Health Outcomes Research) Affinity Group.
