Purpose: The NIH Graduate Partnership Program (GPP) allows graduate students to work in a highly collaborative research environment with leading scientists and clinicians. They explore areas such as bioinformatics, biophysics, epidemiology, immunology, cell and molecular biology, neuroscience, health sciences, structural biology, sensory and communication neuroscience, molecular pathology, biobehavioral research, and developmental biology.
Qualifications: Graduate students come to the NIH in one of two ways: Institutional Partnerships and Individual Partnerships. Institutional Partnerships are for students who have an undergraduate degree and would like to pursue a PhD at one of NIH's Institutional Partner Universities. Institutional partnerships are only available for US citizens and permanent residents. Individual Partnerships are for students currently enrolled in PhD programs who would like to perform part or all of their dissertation research at the NIH and are available for both American and international students.
