Hollaender Fellows Named
DOE announced the award of five FY 1998 Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for up to 2 years of research at DOE laboratories having substantial programs supportive of the Office of Biological and Environmental Research's mission. The mission is to understand health and environmental effects associated with energy technologies and to develop and sustain research programs in life, biomedical, and environmental science.
Fellowship winners were chosen from a field of 40 applicants who received their doctoral degrees after April 30, 1996. Listed below are each fellow's name, university and subject of doctoral degree, host laboratory and research mentor, and proposed research topic.
Past winners are listed on the Web site (www.orau.gov/ober/proglist.htm). A complete description of the program, including history and application forms, is at www.orau.gov/ober/hollaend.htm. See See contact information for more about the 1999 Hollaender Fellowships.

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.
