Congratulations to Menuka Bhandari for being selected to serve as the 2023 Graduate Student Representative for IDI-TA!
The IDI Trainee Association (IDI-TA), is an organization run by trainees for trainees to support their activities and to provide opportunities for growth within the infectious disease space. IDI-TA membership is open to all trainees (postdoctoral fellows/scholars/scientists, clinical fellows, professional students, graduate students, undergraduate students, and lab employees) interested in infectious disease research. Like the Infectious Diseases Institute, the IDI-TA is intentionally interdisciplinary and trainees from all disciplines are encouraged to join. Membership in this organization provides trainees with opportunities for networking, social events, and workshops as well as for career advancement and development. IDI-TA advocates for trainees to gain greater access to resources and ensure trainees maintain a greater role in deciding the scope of opportunities related to infectious disease for students across campus.
