The international Human Genome Organization (HUGO) has announced that new travel awards up to $1500 are available to researchers, generally those who are under the age of 40 and actively engaged in human genome research. These awards will cover travel costs for short-term laboratory visits by investigators wishing to transfer technology or conduct collaborative research. The program, which is not for travel to meetings, will run on a continuing basis as long as financial support is available.
The HUGO Travel Award Committee will consider applications in the order in which they are received, and applicants will be notified of the committee's decision within 2 weeks of receipt.
For further information on travel awards, contact either the HUGO Europe or Americas office.

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.
