Training & Education
Oregon National Primate Research Center scientists play a key role in training future scientists through participation in a variety of both formal and informal science programs here at the Center and in the community.
- Since 1969 the Center has provided summer apprenticeship opportunities for over 250 high school students, many of whom has gone on to careers in medicine and research.
- Since 1985, Center scientists have mentored high school teachers seeking hands-on lab experience. Now funded by the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust’s “Partners in Science” Program, 55 such teachers have enriched their teaching skills in our labs.
- Through academic appointments at OHSU, Center scientists present lectures to medical students, medical residents, and graduate students.
- Center scientists mentor a number of graduate students pursuing their dissertation research as well as post-doctoral fellows who come from around the world to train in our laboratories.
