Subject:Burroughs Wellcome Fund

 Deadline: March 3, 2008 (Letter of Intent)

 The Burroughs Wellcome Fund ( http://www.bwfund.org ) has
 launched a new institutional award program to support graduate
 education in programs that will train students for simultaneous
 expertise in both population approaches (for example, epidemi-
 ology) and laboratory-based biological sciences.
 
 The awards will provide support for graduate-training programs
 at degree-granting U.S. and Canadian institutions. Understanding
 human health will be a focal priority for the programs that are
 funded. Supported programs will train graduate students to the
 Ph.D. level, but programs may additionally propose giving train-
 ing access to postdoctoral fellows, medical students, medical
 residents, masters students, undergraduates, or other kinds of
 trainees.

 Proposals must be driven by core components within medical and
 public health schools, but beyond those required components,
 departments or centers located within non-medical parts of a
 university, existing inter-institutional collaboratives, research
 museums, free-standing research institutes, and other nonprofit
 institutions that provide advanced-level training are all accept-
 able as potential additional partners. Dental, osteopathic, and
 veterinary medical schools are appropriate applicants.

 Awards will provide $500,000 a year for five years. The Burroughs
 Wellcome Fund anticipates that up to four awards will be made in
 the program's first round. This program will be offered again in
 2009.
 
 Visit the BWF Web site for complete program guidelines and
 application procedures.
