Some disciplines represented in training offered: Biostatistics, Economics, Epidemiology, Exercise Physiology, Genetics, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Nutrition, Physiology, Psychology and Sociology.

Key program components: Mentoring by program directors and major professors who have a strong track record in science and mentorship; Coursework available; Interdisciplinary research training; Weekly Nutrition Seminar Series; Hands-on intervention experience, as appropriate; and Clinical research opportunities for those interested.

Eligibility • Individuals with a doctoral degree from any scientific field are eligible. • UAB is committed to providing educational, employment, and enrichment opportunities for members of underrepresented groups.
