Postdoctoral Research Fellows
The University of Michigan (UM) Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training Program in Community Living and Participation (ARRTP-CP) trains postdoctoral fellows to advance the rehabilitation field in community living and participation by embracing research approaches and methodologies that are person-centered, community-based, and focus on optimizing participation. This program is a collaborative effort among academic researchers at the UM and their partners at community-based organizations.
NIH Rheumatology T32 Post-Doctoral Fellowship
The University of Michigan (UM) is designed to prepare outstanding postdoctoral scientists, both MD and PhD, for investigative careers in research related to the rheumatic diseases. The program is motivated by several key factors including (i) the tremendous clinical need caused by the unrelenting burden of rheumatic diseases; (ii) persistent knowledge gaps in our understanding of the pathophysiology of these diseases; (iii) an appreciation that rheumatic diseases are propelled by complex processes in need of multidisciplinary approaches; and (iv) a threatened pipeline of diverse investigators committed to careers conducting rheumatology research. Fortunately, recent advances in biomedical and clinical sciences have created unprecedented research opportunities to understand disease etiologies more deeply—and ultimately improve outcomes through an approach personalized to the care of each individual living with a rheumatic disease. The T32 program director is Dr. Jason Knight.
Graduate students interested in research have the opportunity to work with Dr. Murphy and her team of scientists, clinicians, and patient partners.
