The DOE Office of Health and Environmental Research has announced that three people have accepted Human Genome Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for 1993. The winners will conduct research for up to 2 years at DOE and university laboratories that have substantial research efforts supported by the DOE Human Genome Program. Fellows have the opportunity to attend contractor-grantee and professional meetings, where they can interact with other investigators.
Names of the 1993 fellows and their majors, graduate institutions, host laboratories, and research plans are given below.
These fellowships carry a stipend of $37,500 for the first year and $40,500 the second. The fellowship program is administered by the Science and Engineering Education Division of the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education [P.O. Box 117; Oak Ridge, TN 37831-0117 (615/576-9934, Fax: -0202)].
The next application deadline is February 1, 1994.

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
