Translational Immunology Center Education

Faculty in NYU Langone’s Translational Immunology Center lead dynamic training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

PhD Training Program in Immunology and Inflammation

Training the next generation of immunologists is a key mission of the Translational Immunology Center. At the core of this is the PhD Training Program in Immunology and Inflammation, which is supported by a T32 training grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health.

The immunology and inflammation program trains doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows in immunology research and includes a rigorous graduate curriculum and a range of events including an external speaker seminar series, a weekly works in progress seminar series in which trainees present their ongoing work, weekly journal club presentations given by trainees and faculty, and annual retreats.

The Bernard Levine Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology

The Bernard Levine Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology was established in 2017 through the generosity of Bernard Levine, PhD, a former associate of Baruj Benacerraf, to promote the training of top junior immunologists and support their transition to independent positions.

Every year, two postdoctoral fellows from the labs associated with the PhD Training Program in Immunology and Inflammation are selected for up to two years of support.

The 2020 Bernard Levine Fellows are Jhimmy Talbot, PhD, working in the Littman Lab, and Sofya Perelman, PhD, working in the Torres Lab.
