Training Core

The Training Core offers graduate students and fellows the opportunity to train in any of our labs and provides them with direct mentoring. Additionally, it facilitates interactions between UNC trainees and trainees/PIs from other TCORS groups around the country to ensure a solid grounding in tobacco regulatory science. We also encourage trainees to attend lectures on the respiratory system provided by the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology and provide them with access to existing seminars at the University of North Carolina (UNC), including lectures held by the Cystic Fibrosis and Pulmonary Research Center; Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Center; Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma and Lung Biology (CEMALB); the Pulmonary Scholars Program, which is a collaboration between UNC, Duke, North Carolina State and the National Institute on Environmental Health and Science (NIEHS); and the Curriculum in Toxicology.
