The University of Iowa Program in Biomedical Ethics invites applications for its visiting fellowships in molecular and clinical genetics. This project is part of the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) core of the Cooperative Human Linkage Center, one of ten genome centers funded by the National Center for Human Genome Research. The fellowship program is intended for philosophers, historians, attorneys, journalists, nurses, and other professionals who are not biological scientists but have demonstrated a strong interest in the ELSI aspects of human genetics.
Working in laboratory and clinical settings, fellows will analyze implications of genetic research and observe the increasing connections among molecular genetics, clinical genetics, and ELSI-related issues. The fellowship program will begin in fall 1994 (for 1994-95) and continue in fall 1995 (for 1995-96). A maximum of three fellows each year will receive a monthly stipend of $3500 for a period of 2 to 4 months.
Application deadline: January 1, 1994. Inquiries and requests for applications: Jay Horton; Program in Biomedical Ethics; University of Iowa College of Medicine, 112 MEB; Iowa City, IA 52242 (319/335-6706).

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.
