NIH-Funded T32 Training Grants
Institutional (T32) and Individual (F32) NIH-funded research fellowships, described in this section, are either funded by a T32 Institutional Research Service Awards or an F32 Individual National Research Service Awards.
There are currently three NIH-supported institutional training grants associated with the DPHB:
- Research Training Program in Adolescent/Young Adult Biobehavioral HIV Research
- Research Training in Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine
Postdoctoral training at Brown allows the postdoctoral fellow to have as much autonomy as possible. The exact nature of training (the mixture of didactic experiences, exposure to ongoing faculty research, direct research involvement of the fellows, etc.) is decided on an individual basis by each of the faculty mentors and postdoctoral fellows.
The NIH Institutional Research Training Committee is composed of all the Directors and Associate Directors of the various T32 grants in the DPHB. The Clinical Psychology Training Programs at Brown: A Consortium of the Providence VA Medical Center, Lifespan, and Care New England is centrally controlled through a committee, which is within the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (DPHB) of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The Training Committee, under the leadership of the Director, Dr. Elizabeth McQuaid, is the central coordinating body of the NIH Research Training Program’s policies and goals.
Brown postdoctoral fellowship training is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC).
There are also two NIH-supported institutional training grants associated with the Center for Alcohol and Addictions Studies (CAAS):
