HHMI Awards $10 Million for Interdisciplinary Graduate Education

Abstract:
The recipients of the HHMI awards were chosen from 132 applicants. Their proposed programs (include):

The Johns Hopkins University
Scientists are in the early stages of learning how to manipulate molecules and atoms to build incredibly tiny machines and revolutionary new materials. Once found only in the pages of science fiction, a new age of nanotechnology is coming to medical science. The Johns Hopkins University's new training program in nanotechnology for biology and medicine (NBMed) aims to produce researchers able to create new particles and materials to be used in the detection, treatment, prevention, and cure of human disease. The program will recruit students from biochemistry, chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering, while making a special effort to include minorities under-represented in science. NBMed students will take three new core courses and an interdisciplinary lab course, participate in a new professional development seminar series, and present their research results at an annual NBMed symposium. This diverse group of students will learn to reach across disciplines as they advance the field of medicine through the application of nanotechnology.
