The WVU Cell & Molecular Biology and Biomedical Engineering Training Program (CBTP), funded by NIGMS grant T32 GM133369, is accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year.
CBTP is an integrated graduate training program that crosses several departments and colleges at West Virginia University (WVU). Preceptors are drawn from Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Exercise Physiology, Microbiology/Immunology, Neurosciences, Ophthalmology, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Physiology/Pharmacology, and trainees from the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) and Biomedical Engineering (BMEG) Ph.D. Programs respectively.
Ph.D. students in these programs can apply for appointment to the CBTP program at the end of their first year. Preference is given to those committed to incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives and methods to address important problems in cell biology, molecular biology and/or biomedical engineering.
The goals of the CBTP are:
- To enhance and broaden scientific development of pre-doctoral students in BMS and BMEG programs
- To enhance professional and career development of pre-doctoral students
The CBTP aims to achieve these goals by supporting the following activities:
1) Nanocourses on topics selected by students
2) Seminars, regional meetings & symposia
3) Student sabbaticals, travel awards and experiential activities
Pre-doctoral applicants for a CBTP trainee position* should submit:
- An up-to-date Curriculum Vitae or Biosketch (should include academic, research and employment history, awards, accomplishments, presentations, publications and academic record [courses taken and grades received])
- A brief statement of how your research interests relate to the themes of the CBTP and what you expect to gain from participation in CBTP activities (limit to 1 page single spaced)

WVU connecting southern West Virginians with substance use disorder to recovery resources, jobs, transportation and more
The Appalachian Regional Commission has awarded a two-year, nearly $500,000 grant to WVU for the project, “West Virginia Inspiring Hope,” to enhance and expand the existing recovery-to-work ecosystem, including training, job placement, recovery treatment, housing and transportation in a seven-county area — Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Nicholas, Pocahontas, Summers and Webster.
On Dec. 31, 2019, the World Health Organization's (WHO) office in China noted a report of cases of "viral pneumonia" on the website of the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission. Earlier that same month, there was another important milestone: at its headquarters in Geneva, the WHO celebrated the 40th anniversary of the confirmation of the eradication of smallpox. As more and more people receive vaccines and with steep declines in the number of COVID-19 cases worldwide, what does the end of this pandemic look like? Will we also win freedom from this virus?
