Training Programs

The Center for Lung Biology provides a vibrant collaborative research environment within the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, forming an outstanding framework for training in lung biology and related areas. In addition to the strong research programs of our faculty, there are a number of relevant seminars held weekly during the academic year, including those in the Center’s Research Seminar Series, the joint Physiology-Pharmacology Cell Signaling Seminar Series, and the weekly College of Medicine Distinguished Scientist Seminar. The Center’s weekly Research-in-Progress meeting is a forum for faculty and trainees to critically discuss current data as well as relevant literature. A key element of training is the development of a network for collaboration and mentoring. To that end, all Center trainees meet with visiting scientists and are expected to present their work at national meetings. In addition to the expectation for abstracts and research papers, advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are expected to develop and submit a grant proposal for extramural funding. The Center offers training opportunities for students and fellows at any academic stage.
