The goal of this training grant is to prepare the next generation of scientists who will conduct high quality research and make new discoveries in biomedical sciences. The research focus of students who train in our program is to understand fundamental mechanisms in signaling and cellular regulation, an area which is key to the discovery of new therapeutic treatments for human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, inflammation, heart disease, immunological and neurological disorders, and birth defects, and forms a foundation for modern research in biology and medicine. The purpose of this INCLUDE supplement application to the existing parent T32 program is to enhance the robust environment for training graduate students in scientific areas that are relevant to alterations observed in Down syndrome and its co-occurring conditions.
