MMoD trainees do not teach while funded on the NIGMS training grant. Students, however, typically serve as teaching assistants (TAs) at some point during their graduate program of study. Assignments may include mentored curriculum development, management of laboratory sections, recitations, or other faculty-directed courses. Trainees additionally obtain teaching experience through one-on-one mentoring of undergraduate research projects in their labs. Below are some helpful training resources for teaching.
