Education & Outreach

Training Opportunities

Faculty in the UW-Madison Blood Research Program have innovative, extramurally-funded programs that provide outstanding training opportunities for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical fellows and undergraduates.

Interested candidates dedicated to developing strong training in laboratory investigation (basic and translational science) are encouraged to contact the individual faculty regarding training opportunities. We aim to develop and nurture a community of highly talented, interactive, enthusiastic, and self-motivated scholars that will represent the next-generation of leaders in molecular and cellular hematology, oncology, and more broadly in biomedical research and medicine. Please feel free to contact Dr. Bresnick ( if you wish to discuss our program and potential training and/or job opportunities.
