The Intramural NIAID Research Opportunities (INRO) 2022 cohort began their postbac research training awards in June. The group was invited to participate in a two-day virtual event in early February, where they interviewed with NIAID PIs for a postbac opportunity in NIAID intramural research labs in Maryland and Montana. The group had the opportunity to learn about NIH, meet the INRO 2020 cohort, attend research seminars given by NIAID PIs, and to get a feel for life and research in NIAID.
