NIH Extramural Research Training Representatives

NIH is made up of 27 Institutes and Centers each with a specific research agenda and its own training representative(s). We recommend visiting the Institute, Center, or Office website to learn about training opportunities in your research area of interest then contacting the NIH training staff listed below to discuss research programs and strategies for training and career development. An initial inquiry via email is recommended so that NIH staff may identify relevant materials and set up a mutually convenient time to talk.
