New Funding Announcement — MPC Training Program in Population Health Science

The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new five-year training program in Population Health Science, funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). This program, housed at the MPC, will train pre- and post-doctoral fellows in social and health science fields to build skills in interdisciplinary population health research. The focus and unique identity of this T32 training program is to train the next generation of population health scientists to consider the interactive effects of biological/genetic, social, economic, spatial, and policy factors on population health over multiple time scales. The program is co-led by Dr. John Robert Warren (Department of Sociology) and Dr. Theresa Osypuk (Division of Epidemiology and Community Health). Together with an outstanding team of 44 faculty mentors from four colleges and seven disciplinary departments, they will prepare five pre and two postdoctoral trainees to engage in a range of scholarship, coursework, professional development and intellectual activities to solve complex seemingly intractable population health problems. This program is funded by NIH grant T32HD095134: Interdisciplinary Population Health Science Training: Linking Multilevel Forces Across Time.
