We’re hosting a webinar for students and fellows interested in the PRAT Program for the October 2, 2020, receipt date:
Tuesday, July 14, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET
PRAT is a competitive 3-year fellowship program that prepares trainees for leadership positions in biomedical careers. Training includes a mentored laboratory research experience and intensive career and leadership development activities. PRAT fellows conduct research in laboratories in the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) in basic biomedical research areas within the NIGMS mission. These areas include, but are not limited to, biological chemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, cellular and molecular biology, computational biosciences, developmental biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology, and technology development.

UPDATE: The slides from the NIH-DOE webinars are now available on the Advanced Bioimaging Capabilities and Biomedical Research Opportunities webpage.
NIH and the Department of Energy (DOE) support national centers and dedicated instruments for high-resolution bioimaging at national facilities including:
- X-ray microscopy and tomography
- 3D electron microscopy
- cryo-electron microscopy
- infrared imaging
- light microscopy
- live cell imaging
- image analysis
- software development
- data management
Recognizing that new directions in science are often launched by innovative tools and methods as well as new biological concepts, the agencies also support the development of novel bioimaging tools and methods at these centers and in the laboratories of independent researchers.
