Science and Medicine Graduate Research Scholars (SciMed GRS) – The SciMed GRS Program strives to enhance the experiences of underrepresented graduate students in the College of Agricultural Sciences, School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Pharmacy, and School of Veterinary Medicine. SciMed GRS coordinates professional development opportunities and community gatherings of graduate scholars.

Infectious Disease Fellowship – The Infectious Disease training program is designed to prepare postdoctoral fellows for academic and/or clinical careers in the discipline of Infectious Disease. The UW-Madison Department of Medicine offers a combined clinical/research fellowship that is two (or more) years in duration, including the required two years of combined clinical and research training for ABIM subspecialty certification and an optional additional year or longer of full-time research.

Pediatrics Infectious Disease Fellowship – The UW-Madison Department of Pediatrics offers the Wisconsin Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellowship program, an ACGME-accredited program that educates physicians to become leaders in the subspecialty of pediatric infectious diseases.  Over a 3-year period, fellows will receive education in the optimal care of children with unusual or complicated infectious diseases; develop skills required for teaching and leadership; and advance the field through research and educational endeavors.

Medical Scientist Training Program – The Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison provides integrated graduate training in scientific research and clinical medicine, leading to a combined MD/PhD degree. Our goal is to produce physician-scientists who will make major contributions to the understanding and improvemnet of human health. The program, drawing from the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and the UW-Madison Graduate School, works to ensure that students take full advantage of the remarkable resources and opportunities present at UW-Madison for both medical education and graduate research.

Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) – The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center will conduct basic, genomics-based research to design the microbial and plant systems needed to realize the potential of biofuels. Combining innovative science, a critical mass of natural assets and the corporate horsepower to build and advance a new bioenergy economy, the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center will become a worldwide center of excellence for research and development of cellulosic ethanol and other bioenergy products. In support of this vision, GLBRC activities will be led by experts in plant biology, microbiology, molecular or cell biology, biochemistry, protein design, engineering, computer sciences, systems analysis, and ecology.

Immunology at UW-Madison – Immunology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a collection of basic, translational and clinical immunologists devoted to advancing our understanding of the immune system and how we can harness it to benefit human health.  Our mission is to push the boundaries of immunology and its applications but also to train the next generation of immunologists. Research in the Program in Immunology covers a wide range of research foci including Allergy and Infectious Disease Immunology, Tumor Immunology, Autoimmunity and Transplant Immunology and Basic Immunology and includes investigators spread across 14 departments and 5 graduate training programs.
