The continuous training of our Postdoctoral fellows is key to advancing
La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology's research focus, and
furthering the talent pool in the biomedical research field in San Diego
and beyond. Postdoctoral training is a time when new scientists ripen
their skills and methods before striking out on their own as independent
researchers. At the La Jolla Institute, the intense collaboration
between our faculty members and their post-docs is an unparalleled
experience and opportunity. Post-docs participate in weekly seminars to
discuss their research path and findings, and engage in daily
discussions and laboratory training. While not yet a formalized
curriculum, our post-docs excel through the variety of training
opportunities provided via grant writing and development, presentation
skills, seminar preparation and conferences.
Our alumni are some of the leaders in the field of immunology, and continue their collaboration long after they have left the Institute. According to one alumnus, "I am proud to be associated with [the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology], which was so instrumental in helping launch not only my own career, but those of many other immunologists."
