The goal of the Molecular Virology Training Program is to produce highly qualified scientists committed to careers in biomedical research related to the molecular biology of human viral infections.
Our training program provides trainees with thorough foundations in fundamental virology and molecular biology concepts and techniques, primarily through laboratory research experience. Program enhancement is provided through trainee participation in the Molecular Virology and Microbiology Seminar Series, journal clubs, and attendance and presentation at national meetings, plus the wealth of seminars available throughout the Texas Medical Center.
The training program is based in the Department of Molecular Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine. The department has newly renovated and equipped laboratory and support space, has recently expanded its faculty, and is currently recruiting additional faculty. The Texas Medical Center, the location of Baylor College of Medicine, contains 40 member institutions engaged in health-related activities. Research is facilitated by a general willingness for cooperation among faculty, within Baylor and throughout the Medical Center. This dynamic setting is ideal for state-of-the-art research training in molecular virology.
This program is supported by the “Molecular Virology Training Grant”
