Bird to lead new iPEnd T32 grant

Tags: Ian Bird, reproductive sciences, research

We are pleased to announce a new translational postdoctoral T32 lead by our own Ian Bird, PhD, of the Division of Reproductive Sciences, in partnership with Dr. Jon Levine. This application is a part of the integrated Program in Endocrinology (iPEnd), started back in 2016.

This T32 is an unusual grant as it funds both PhD and MD trainees to undertake translational studies in reproductive biology and requires a translational step in humans or nonhuman primates. It is also linked to clinical fellowships in Maternal-Fetal Medicine, neonatology, and general endocrinology.

The program is newly funded for five years and funds four concurrent trainees. Each trainee will have two complimentary mentors working in a new area moving basic research towards clinical application. For more information, please contact Ian Bird or Grace Jensen at gjensen2@wisc.edu.
