The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requests applications for the Training in Genomics and Hemoglobinopathies program.  The purpose of this initiative is to create a multidisciplinary, institutional postdoctoral research training initiative in hemoglobinopathies and genomics/proteomics. The training and research initiative must include five components:

  • Didactic Training: Courses relevant to the proposed research might include sufficient courses to prepare the fellow for an independent research career.
  • Laboratory Experience in Genomics/Proteomics: A laboratory rotation of sufficient length to ensure that the fellow has sufficient skills in and understands how genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics tools and technologies are utilized in designing large-scale experiments and collecting, manipulating and interpreting large data sets.
  • Research Training in Hemoglobinopathies: Fellows should work with established researchers to develop a research project that will maximize the knowledge and skills they learn from the didactic training and laboratory experience.
  • Submission of Grant Application Prior to Completing the Program: Before the end of the two- or three-year program, it is expected that fellows will have sufficient preliminary data to submit a research grant application to a US federal or international agency.
  • Plans for Future Collaboration Between Research Faculty and Fellows: It is expected that mentors and fellows will develop significant research collaborations that extend beyond the two- to three-year training program.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall no later than Friday, April 22, 2005.  Letters of intent shall be limited to 3 pages and include identification of potential collaborators and budgetary outline.

Amount: $200,000 - $300,000. No cost sharing or matching funds are required for this program.
