Future of Bioscience Graduate and Postdoctoral Training 2

Modified: March 29, 2017

In 2015, a national meeting was held to discuss various models that have been proposed for the Future of Bioscience Graduate and Postdoctoral Training (FOBGAPT) and generate new ideas with broad input from the academic community. On June 8-10, 2017, the University of Colorado Denver-Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Michigan Rackham Graduate School are co-hosting the follow-up meeting, FOBGAPT2, in Denver to work through practical aspects of implementing new models.

Up to 500 stakeholders are expected to participate from academia, the private sector, foundations, and federal funding agencies, with promising practices and consensus recommendations to be summarized in a “white paper”. Participants are encouraged to submit Abstracts (due April 15) related to the Workshop topics, to be available to attendees and on their website.
