The T32 Vision Science Training Grant at Washington University in St. Louis trains pre- and postdoctoral scientists in the broad area of vision science. Students are drawn from graduate and postdoctoral programs in Biochemistry, Computational Biology, Developmental Biology, Human Statistical Genetics, Immunology, Molecular Biophysics, Molecular Cell Biology, Molecular Genetics & Genomics, Microbiology & Microbial Pathogenesis, and Neurosciences. The training program is delivered by 32 preceptors, 22 of whom are NEI funded, studying nearly all aspects of ocular function and pathology. Trainees participate in the rich environment of seminars, advanced courses, honorary lectures, journal clubs, and retreats offered in the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences at Washington University and in the NEI-sponsored course, Fundamental Issues in Vision Research. The training program supports two postdoctoral trainees for their first year at Washington University. The pre-doctoral training program supports six graduate students. The overall goal of the program is to attract a cadre of gifted, well-trained biomedical scientists to careers in vision research.
