Training in Environmental Health Biostatistics

Dr. Sally Thurston with trainees

Our T32 training grant “Training in Environmental Health Biostatistics” (T32ES007271) is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences at NIH.

The grant was first awarded in 1992, was successfully led by Dr. David Oakes for 20 years, and is now led by Dr. Sally W. Thurston.  

The goal of this program is to prepare qualified predoctoral and/or postdoctoral trainees for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. The training environment is achieved by a collaboration between biostatisticians and Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) researchers.

T32 trainers include Drs. Thurston, Oakes, Brent Johnson, Tanzy Love, Matthew McCall, Michael McDermott, and Rob Strawderman from Biostatistics, and Drs. Emily Barrett from Rutgers (formerly from OB/GYN in Rochester), Deborah Cory-Slechta from Environmental Medicine, and Drs. David Rich and Edwin van Wijngaarden from Public Health Sciences.

The grant supports three doctoral students and one postdoctoral fellow each year.  

Please contact Sally Thurston for more information if interested in a postdoctoral position supported by this grant.
