    Translational Research in Aging Training Program Short Term Predoctoral
    Training Slots

    The Harvard-Wide Translational Research in Aging Training Program
    provides several funded short-term (8-12 weeks) research opportunities
    (clinical and basic science) for pre-doctoral candidates (M.D. and / or
    Ph.D.). A stipend is provided through a National Institute on Aging
    Training grant.

    The specific area of research may relate to any field encompassed
    within the biomedical / healthcare framework, but must address some
    aspect of aging. Candidates may choose their mentor or request to be
    matched with a mentor from our list of participating mentors.

    Successful applicants must engage in 8-12 consecutive weeks of research.
    This requirement makes summer research the most desirable for the
    majority of applicants. Those choosing to engage in research during the
    summer will also have the opportunity to participate in the Boston
    Geriatrics Research Scholars didactic program.
