The Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP) was crafted to take advantage of the best of two worlds – the academic environment of highly respected universities, and the breadth and depth of research at NIH. The goal is to create a different kind of graduate experience, one which purposefully focuses on skills of the future scientist and how discoveries will be made in the decades ahead. The volume and type of knowledge being discovered each day is leading to a new generation of integrative science. Although there are still limitless new details to be discovered, biomedical science has reached an era in which questions can now be asked that require integration of data and strategies across laboratories, disciplines and continents.
