The Immunology Training Program (ITP) is an interdepartmental teaching and research program involving faculty participants from multiple disciplines within the Boston University Schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Dental Medicine. This program is partially funded by the National Institutes of Health through a T32 Training Grant, “Research Training in Immunology.” Students can be admitted to the ITP through either the Microbiology or Pathology Departments, where they follow a modified track specifically designed for students in the ITP. The program of study includes a literature-based curriculum, prominent guest speakers, and spirited journal clubs as well as extensive hands-on laboratory training. Small class sizes and extensive interaction with the faculty provide students with the opportunity to customize their training according to their specific scientific interests.
