Academic Level:
Faculty & Administrators

Description:
The primary objective of the Summer Institute in Genetic Epidemiology is to provide all-expense-paid training and mentoring in genetic epidemiology and risk factors to junior-level faculty and scientists that are under-represented in the biomedical sciences and/or with a disability, so that they can competently and effectively develop independent research programs on cutting edge Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep (HLBS) disorders. This initiative to bring under-represented faculty and scientists into research is important because of the major public health burden of these diseases, especially in minority populations.

This Summer Institute program was designed to provide a working knowledge and appreciation for genetic epidemiology and bioinformatics methods and to integrate these skills with the Mentee’s substantive research interests in CVD and HLBS problems. It will (1) require participation in 3-week summer institutes during each of two summers, (2) attending a mid-year meeting at Washington University (January) and a meeting among all sites & NHLBI (April/May), and (3) involve long-term networking with a Mentor to advance one’s own research career.
