IRP Fellows’ Scientific Training Day

Scientific Training Day is an annual meeting of the NIMH intramural research community that is hosted at an off-site location and showcases cutting-edge research conducted by postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, graduate students, and postbaccalaureate NIMH trainees. The major goals of training day are to facilitate interaction among trainees, promote future scientific collaborations, and instill a sense of community within the NIMH. This event also features career development workshops specifically tailored for NIMH trainees of all levels and presentations by distinguished scientists from the extramural research community and NIH. All intramural NIMH principal investigators, staff scientists, and staff clinicians are welcome to attend and connect with and exchange ideas with NIMH colleagues, trainees, and invited guests.
