In order to be eligible, students need to work with NIH funded investigators.
Those pictured below have agreed to be a mentor on the T35. However, this opportunity is open to all investigators at Northwestern with NIH funding.
For your convenience, here is a link to the NIH Reporter website. We ask students plug-in the name of the mentor they are considering to see if they are NIH funded. Any mentor with federal funding (DOD, NSF, CDC, etc) is eligible. Please contact us if you need contact information or have any additional questions.
