Applicants eligible for INRO are talented graduating seniors (bachelor’s or master’s) or those who have recently completed an undergraduate or master’s degree. Through INRO, the NIAID training office sponsors postbaccalaureate trainees from U.S. populations underrepresented in the biomedical sciences and those dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion (Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity). Individuals from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Those selected for INRO will participate in a two-day event in February 2022 and meet with potential mentors to discuss training opportunities in allergic, immunologic, and infectious disease research.
