2017-18 Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs)

Alaska INBRE invites proposals for 2017-2018 Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) applications.

The primary objective of the GRA program is to provide support for projects in the biomedical sciences with mentorship from UAF, UAA, or UAS faculty involved in biomedical research. Graduate students funded through this program will gain valuable experience in designing, conducting and reporting biomedical research and training in scientific method, scientific writing, and preparation of theses, manuscripts, reports and presentations.
