Opportunities at PGFI

The Penn Genome Frontiers Institute provides support to PENN researchers in several ways, including providing funding opportunities for faculty and graduate students.

Grant Funding

PGFI has funded research in strategic areas of the genome sciences. These pilot grants provide the means to pursue innovative, and often risky, ideas to the point that the investigators are able to apply for conventional funding mechanisms. Typically grants are awarded for one to two years, for up to $120,000.

Pilot grant recipients

PGFI Excellence in Genome Science Graduate Student Award

This stipend supplement is awarded to incoming graduate students who have expressed an interest in pursuing genomics research. The award helps Penn departments recruit their top candidates, while the local genomics community is strengthened by the addition of these promising scholars.
