Genetic Epidemiology - Training Grants

MD-GEM Training Grant

The Maryland Genetics, Epidemiology, and Medicine (MD-GEM) training program is funded by the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund to support cross-disciplinary training in population and laboratory genetics. The goal of this program is to train students to be successful in a statistical and laboratory setting by providing them opportunities to be exposed to the different research areas. Students can apply to either the Department of Epidemiology in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health or the Institute of Genetic Medicine. The MD-GEM training program brings together faculty from the School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, the Institute of Genetic Medicine and the National Human Genome Research Institute.

The Eye and Vision Genomics Training Grant

The Eye and Vision Genomics Training Program (EVGTP) is funded by a National Eye Institute institutional research grant (T32-EY-022303) to support training in statistical genomics of eye diseases and vision disorders. Its mission is to provide advanced training to pre-doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows in the application of epidemiological, statistical, computational, and bioinformatics methods to genomic research of ocular diseases and vision disorders. The EVGTP combines the expertise of more than 20 faculty members from the Departments of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (JHSPH) as well as from the Wilmer Eye Institute and the Institute of Genetic Medicine in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
