Created institutional training grants that have the potential for breeding even more new animal experimenters
Institutional Training Grants
IDA's Top 10 List also includes two experiments funded by NIH T32 training grants, which enable institutions to provide financial and other support to individuals "for predoctoral and postdoctoral research training." These T32 grants also help to breed the next generation of animal experimenters, and potentially in larger numbers than the F31 predoctoral grants awarded to individuals, not institutions. For example, one of the two T32 grants on IDA's Top 10 List focuses largely on training nine predoctoral fellows in basic science, including various "animal models," does not provide clinical training, and includes participating faculty from the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.
