About the NHGRI Summer Workshop in Genomics

The NHGRI Summer Workshop in Genomics is offered by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

This intensive, six-day course is designed to update biology instructors, as well as other instructors and researchers in related disciplines, on genomic science. The course focuses on the continuing effort to find the genetic basis of various diseases and disorders, and current topics on the ethical, legal and social implications of genomics. This course is especially intended for college and university faculty seeking to update their curriculum or to develop new courses related to genetics.

Funding for the 2013 NHGRI Short Course workshop is still pending the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)/ National Institutes of Health (NIH) approval. We will update the website as soon as more information is made available.

Room and board are paid by NHGRI; participant schools pay travel costs for faculty participants, both to and from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Eligibility

This course is designed to update instructors who train students from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in health related sciences and instructors from institutions that predominantly train students with disabilities and students from disadvantaged backgrounds including certain rural and inner-city environments.

Faculty at colleges and universities that train students predominantly from racial and ethnic groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis (See Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering ) and institutions that train students from a social, cultural, or educational environment such as that found in certain rural or inner-city environments that have demonstrably and recently directly inhibited the individual from obtaining the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to develop and participate in a research career will be considered. Faculty from institutions that train predominantly students with disabilities, which are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities are invited to apply as well.

Institutions that train largely students from disadvantaged backgrounds are defined as: Students who come from a family with an annual income below established low-income thresholds. These thresholds are based on family size; published by the U.S. Bureau of the Census; adjusted annually for changes in the Consumer Price Index; and adjusted by the Secretary for use in all health professions programs. The Secretary periodically publishes these income levels in Poverty Guidelines, Research, and Measurement .
