The PhRMA Foundation is accepting applications for its Informatics grants program, which supports students in advanced stages of training and thesis research.
The goal of the program is to promote the development and use of novel informatics in understanding the normal processes of human biology and disease. Informatics awards support the career development of scientists engaged in research that significantly integrates state-of-the-art information technology developed with advanced biological, chemical, and pharmacological sciences in the areas of genetics proteomics, molecular systems biology, medical (human) pathways and networks, pharmaco-integrative biology, population modeling and simulation, novel approaches to the analysis of big data, and genomics molecular epidemiology.
Grant awards will range up to $20,000 per year for up two years.
To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time student who will have completed most of his/her pre-thesis requirements (at least two years of study) and be engaged in thesis research as a PhD candidate by the time the award is activated. Due to the high demand for the fellowship, the PhRMA Foundation will accept only two applications per academic institution. All applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
