Fellowships Offered by University of Iowa Program in Biomedical Ethics

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 the genome centers funded by the NIH National Center for Human Genome Research. Work in laboratory and clinical settings is central to the 2- to 4-month fellowships, which include a monthly stipend of $3500. The fellowships are 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. Application deadline: December 30. [Inquiries and requests for applications: Jay Horton; Program in Biomedical Ethics; University of Iowa; 1-112 MEB; Iowa City, IA 52242-1000 (319/335-9631, Fax: -8515, Internet:]

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

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.
