Training and Educational Resources Overview

Continual training is a part of the MCRI Postdoctoral Fellowship program. The MCRI fellowship program utilizes existing partnerships with regional educational institutes, national research organizations and agencies, and numerous networks to provide fellows with access to a wide range of interdisciplinary activities, external workshops, online classes, webinars, and network meetings. Below are the specific opportunities fellows may utilize during their time at MCRI. Some resources are specific to a research area and/or subject to change. Please contact Seth Langreck and speak with mentors for current status.  

Mentees will work with mentors to develop a training matrix, a living document that outlines the milestones of the fellowship. The following resources are available for consideration while developing the training plan matrix.
