NCHGR Invites Grant Applications

NCHGR invites applications for funding of research related to the Human Genome Project in the following categories:

  1. Use of the National Research Service Award to support predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows interested in genome research (receipt dates are September 10, January 10, and May 10);
  2. Pilot projects or feasibility studies to support creative and novel high-risk/high-payoff research in human genomics;
  3. Support for research that will significantly advance progress toward achieving the scientific goals of the Human Genome Project; and
  4. Assistance awards for research into the isolation of highly polymorphic genetic linkage markers and their use for the development of a framework linkage map of the human genome.

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.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
