Current Trainees

3rd year MBTG students at Lake Mendota


The Molecular Biosciences Training Grant (MBTG) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison receives funding through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences Institutional Training Grant mechanism to train outstanding students in molecular biosciences.

The trainees typically earn doctoral degrees in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Cellular and Molecular Pathology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or a closely related field. Trainees receive a stipend from NIH that replaces the need for a research assistantship funded by a professor’s research grant. These prestigious positions are offered only to students entering graduate school with outstanding credentials and a strong interest in pursuing a career in biological science. The traineeships are open to citizens and permanent residents of the United States.
