Limited Submission Announcement

The National Eye Institute (NEI) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) for Statistical Genetics and Genome Informatics is intended to support predoctoral and postdoctoral training at institutions having the potential to develop meritorious training programs in genomic medicine, computational genomics, and statistical genetics. The goal of this program is to initiate a training program to develop ophthalmic statistical genetics and bioinformatics research skills critical for investigators seeking to identify genes and genetic variations underlying ocular diseases. This training program is designed to attract individuals in early career stages, in order to increase their knowledge and awareness of research in the genetics of ophthalmic disorders, and to encourage them to pursue research career opportunities in these scientific fields.
