NCHGR Programs

Eastern European Programs

PA 92-67 and PA 92-68

To facilitate collaboration between U.S. and Central and Eastern European scientists, NIH NCHGR and the Fogarty International Center are sponsoring research opportunities and extended visits for foreign investigators in U.S. laboratories [see HGN 3(6), 5 (March 1992)]. Support will be through the small-grants mechanism (R03) for the International Genome Research Collaborative Program and through the international fellowships mechanism (F05) for the International Genome Research Fellowship Program. Central and Eastern Europe are defined as Bulgaria, the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, all other republics of the former U.S.S.R., and Yugoslavia.

Applications are encouraged in both categories for the construction of high-resolution genetic and physical maps and the development of (1) new or improved DNA sequencing methods; (2) computer tools, information systems, and strategies for collecting, storing, retrieving, analyzing, interpreting, and distributing large amounts of mapping and sequencing data; or (3) technology to support Human Genome Project objectives. Foreign applicants must have U.S. collaborators (in the case of small grants) or U.S. sponsors (in the case of fellowships) who hold NCHGR grants.

Application receipt dates each year:

  • PA 92-67 (collaborative program) - June 1, October 1, and February 1.
  • PA 92-68 (fellowship program) - September 10, January 10, and May 10.

For further information and to request the special application instructions, contact:

  • David A. Wolff; International Research and Awards Branch; Fogarty International Center; Bldg. 31, Room B2C21; 9000 Rockville Pike; Bethesda, MD 20892; 301/496-1653; Fax: 301/402-0779.

Genome Informatics Research


NIH NCHGR supports informatics research in several targeted areas as well as in the establishment and operation of repositories for collecting and disseminating data derived from the Human Genome Project.

Support for informatics research, development, and infrastructure is furnished through a number of funding mechanisms. Applicants are encouraged to contact NCHGR staff to discuss the appropriateness of a particular support mechanism and any special application requirements.

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.

Human Genome News

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