Translational Research in Aging and Mobility Postdoctoral Training Program

The Translational Research in Aging and Mobility (TRAM) is a postdoctoral training program funded by the National institute on Aging and housed in UF’s Department of Health Outcomes & Biomedical Informatics. The training program is a mentored research education for post-graduate fellows (Ph.D., MD or equivalent). The goal is to create a career pathway for conducting mechanistic and clinically relevant translational research in mobility and aging.We seek individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in the health and wellness of older adults through maintenance of their mobility.

The program funds approximately four fellows at any one time. New TRAM fellows are enrolled following the graduation of existing fellows, who complete their training after approximately 2-3 years. Please contact Todd Manini Ph.D. Program Director ( for more information about the program or to request application materials.

The TRAM program is committed to a culture that is supportive and respectful to all. We believe that scientists from various backgrounds and those with disabilities enhance scientific inquiry to holistically meet our challenge of preserving mobility over the lifespan. We cultivate trainees to become future leaders.
