The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Med Into Grad Initiative will award four-year grants totaling $400,000 to $1,000,000 to support educational programs that incorporate the knowledge and skills of medicine and pathobiology into graduate education in order to train biomedical scientists who are better prepared to translate the discoveries of basic biological science into the treatment of human diseases.

The goal of this initiative is to develop an understanding of pathobiological and medical principles by tomorrow’s Ph.D. biomedical researchers. This new cadre of investigators will appreciate which biological problems are of the greatest clinical relevance and will have the knowledge and skills necessary to facilitate the movement of new biological knowledge to tools for improved human health. The intent is that they will be able to create fruitful working partnerships with physicians.

MU faculty who are interested in making an application for this program must register their intent to apply with the Foundation and with the Office of Research by 1:00 pm CT, April 20, 2005.  When registering your intent to apply, you must list James Coleman (573-882-9500, as the institution's president.  The web site to register an intent to apply is  (Login ID: Guest) (Password: Register).  At the same time as intent to apply is registered with HHMI, a parallel notice should be sent to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall.

While any number of faculty may register to apply, however, only 2 may make a full proposal.  If more than two  faculty members register an intent to apply, the Office of Research will hold an internal competition to determine who the two applicants will be.
