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.
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.
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.
The Spring 2013 newsletter can be viewed here.
Educational Facility Professional Development Workshops can be applied for here.
