Fogarty International Center announces new research training program in genetics

National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland The Fogarty International Center (FIC) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces a new research training program to support international collaborations in human genetic sciences. FIC, with seven NIH partners and the World Health Organization, issued a call for proposals for the new International Collaborative Genetics Research Training Program. The NIH partners are the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The current combined financial commitment from FIC and the partners is approximately $15 million over the next five years.

Our goal in the International Collaborative Genetics Research Training Program is to help reduce the disparities in health status between developed and developing countries through the use of genetic sciences, said FIC Director Gerald T. Keusch, M.D. on behalf of the NIH partners. He added, Through the programs partnerships, we will advance human genetics research while enhancing the limited but growing technical capacity in genetic science in developing regions of the world.

In addition to training in genetic science, the program will address the ethical, social, and legal implications of performing genetics research in low- and middle-income countries.

The program will provide educational opportunities at the Ph.D. and Masters level and will contribute to the capacity of developing country scientists and institutions to conduct human genetics research that is relevant to the health needs of developing countries. Scientists and health professionals from low- and middle-income countries were consulted at all stage
