IGERT alum remain actively engaged in PPNT research

The multidisciplinary training of the PPNT program seeded the growth of trainees who have matured into research, teaching, and policy analysis positions at top universities, national labs, policy institution, and federal government positions. At the same time, these trainees have remained actively engaged in PPNT research efforts and program activities and still assist in the development of each new program associate, thus ensuring the perpetuity of this successful model. Trainees have now moved on to sharing this knowledge at prestigious academic institutions all around the country, including Georgetown, Emory, Georgia Tech, Temple, Yale, and the University of California, Berkeley. We expect this pattern of alumni contribution will continue as more trainees become professors this fall.
