Endocrinology Training Program funded for 67 consecutive years


The NIH-funded T32 Training Program in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism at Stanford, directed by Dr. Andrew Hoffman, was renewed for another 5 years in July 2017, allowing continuous training now in its 42nd year.  However, the program is the lineal descendant of a prior Training Program that existed for 20 years, so the Endocrine training program at Stanford is actually 62 years old. Although primarily based in the Division of Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism of the Department of Medicine, the Training Program has always encompassed the broad scope of endocrine research training by incorporating members of other clinical and basic science departments, fostering improved collaborations and interactions among the investigators from these multiple departments with a focus on endocrinology.
