The McGowan Trainee Career Advancement Program of the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine was initiated to promote interactions between the predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees belonging to the Bioengineering Graduate Program and the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Graduate Program (Cellular and Molecular Pathology). MTCAP provides access to various research seminars and provides networking opportunities at the annual MIRM retreat. At the same time the MTCAP provides travel awards to students and postdocs for presenting at national and international meetings and for attending workshops. Thus, MTCAP’s mission is to foster career development of the trainees of the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine through education, networking and enabling dissemination of their research at national and international platforms.
Travel Scholarships – Up to three travel scholarships of $400 will be sponsored each year. These scholarships are available to graduate students and post-docs and will be based on the review and decision of the directors.
Stem Cell Workshops – Up to two graduate students will be sponsored each year and will be selected on merit. Support is for registration and NTE $1,000.
CATER Seminars – Hear renowned faculty present lectures that are of interest to its members. Experts from academics, as well as from the biotechnology sector, will provide the lectures. In addition, students enrolled in the seminar series (also called Research Seminars in Regenerative Medicine) will also present their own research as part of the seminar series.
McGowan Institute Seminars – MTCAP members will have access to the MIRM seminar schedule, which is an exemplary resource of scientific information. The speakers are experts in the fields of bioengineering, stem cells, tissue regeneration, scaffolds, cell therapies and artificial devices and encompass basic, translational and clinical research. The seminars are an important source of education and networking.
McGowan Institute Newsletter – A monthly MIRM newsletter is available to all MTCAP trainees and showcases timely updates on activities at the MIRM and also updates on accomplishments of MIRM faculty and trainees.
McGowan Institute Retreat– There will be several opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral trainees to showcase their research at the McGowan Institute of Regenerative Medicine annual scientific retreat. The predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees will be also be able compete for awards at the annual retreat. The annual retreat serves an outstanding platform for social and intellectual networking.
