TWD 2017 Meeting Description: A goal of the NIGMS Division of Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity (TWD) is to create a community of trainers and educators dedicated to developing a well-prepared, diverse biomedical research workforce.
Toward that end, the focus of this year’s TWD Program Directors’ Meeting is to continue to build and strengthen the partnerships and networks within the TWD community. The meeting will address the value of sustained networking among the grantees, students and other communities served by these programs. The meeting will enable program directors to learn more about other TWD programs; establish connections with potential new partners, especially regional “neighbors”; and collectively address the Institutes’ research training objectives.
