The NIH/NHGRI Genome Training Grant prepares pre and postdoctoral trainees for research careers in acquiring and interpreting genomic data and using this information in biomedical research. We recognize that this type of research will demand interdisciplinary approaches and multidisciplinary collaborations. One goal of this program is to attract individuals from the physical sciences and engineering to the forefront of modern biological research. The program also trains cellular and molecular biologists in other disciplines so that they can effectively collaborate at this interdisciplinary interface. Towards this end, we support 12 predoctoral and 4 postdoctoral trainees each year.
