Training grants provide funding for a coordinated training program for students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, teachers or faculty who are selected by the institution to be a part of the training program. Each training grant is unique, so the eligibility, funding, and application information for each is distinct.
- Basic Neuroscience Training Grant
- The Training Program in Basic Neuroscience provides students a broad training in the fundamental principles of neuroscience. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Department of Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical Biology Program Training Grant
- The Chemical Biology Program (CBP) supports students engaged in predoctoral training at the chemistry-biology interface. The CBP is funded in part by an NIH T32 Training Grant for Ph.D. students training at this interface. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Chemistry
- Clinical and Translational Science Center TL1 Pre- and Postdoctoral Clinical Research Training Program
- The Clinical and Translational Science Center TL1 Pre- and Post-Doctoral Clinical Research Training Program is jointly sponsored by the UC Davis School of Medicine and the Clinical and Translational Science Center. It provides clinical and translational research training for medical students, pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral scholars in the basic sciences using a team science approach. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
- Environmental Health Sciences Training Grant
- The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Training Program at UC Davis offers interdisciplinary predoctoral training in environmental health science. The objective of this predoctoral program is to train the next generation of environmental health scientists through interdisciplinary research and coursework. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
School of Veterinary Medicine
- Initiative for Maximizing Student Development
- During their first year as a Ph.D. student, each NIH-IMSD Fellow will receive a stipend for living expenses plus all tuition and student fees. This stipend will be provided in partnership with their graduate program. An additional four years of support will be available through a variety of resources including research assistantships, teaching assistantships, or other forms of graduate student support, assuming satisfactory progress is being made toward earning the Ph.D. degree. Supported by National Institutes of Health Initiative for Maximizing Student Development.
- LaMP Training Program and Grant
- The Learning, Memory, and Plasticity (LaMP) Training Program and Grant offer in-depth training in learning, memory, and plasticity research. The goal of this program is to teach the next generation of neuroscientists to have the skills and drive needed to work collaboratively and tackle the most important issues in learning, memory, and plasticity in order to improve human health. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior
- Molecular and Cellular Biology Training Program
- The Training Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology prepares members for successful careers in the biomedical workforce. Training is provided by 65 trainers in 16 academic departments, with wide-ranging interests including genetics, biochemistry, structural biology, cell, molecular and developmental biology, physiology and neuroscience. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Physiology and Membrane Biology
- NEI Vision Science Training Grant
- Vision Sciences Training Grant support is available for the training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Vision Research in laboratories utilizing a wide array of approaches, including genetics of ocular disease, live cell imaging, physiology and behavior, computational modeling, functional neuroimaging, optics, biomedical engineering and psychophysics. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Cell Biology and Human Anatomy
- Oncogenic Signals and Chromosome Biology Post Doctoral Fellowship Program
- This T32 fellowship program in Oncogenic Signals and Chromosome Biology (OSCB) has developed from a general interest in cellular responses and signal pathways integrating both responses to the cellular environment mediated by cell surface receptors and to signals initiated inside of the cell nucleus such as damage to DNA. [Note: The program is for post-doctoral scholars.] Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
- Predoctoral Training in Pharmacological Sciences Program
- The Predoctoral Training in Pharmacological Sciences Program broadens the research perspectives and skills of trainees interested in pharmacological research. It leverages the multidisciplinary biomedical research environment at UC Davis with its highly successful programs in drug development. Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Pharmacology
- Postbaccalaureate Research and Education Program
- The Training Program in Learning, Memory, and Plasticity (LaMP) prepares students in modern approaches to multidisciplinary research in learning, memory and plasticity, across disciplines (cell/molecular, systems, behavior, cognitive) and scales (mouse and NHP animal models and humans). Supported by the National Institutes of Health.
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology
- Sustainable Oceans: from Policy to Science to Decisions Training Grant
- The Sustainable Oceans: from Policy to Science to Decisions training grant will train the next generation of quantitative marine scientists under a new paradigm that begins with the decisions facing policymakers to generate use-inspired research questions across ecology, conservation biology, economics, geology, physiology, biogeochemistry and oceanography. Supported by the National Science Foundation.
