Center for Genetics and Genomics
The Center for Genetics and Genomics is an emerging center focused on our goal to establish critical mass and synergy in genetics and genomics research at MD Anderson.
One of the mechanisms to accomplish this is to bring together researchers to present and discuss current research, exchange ideas for future funding and goals, including the development of much-needed genomics core facilities, and to disseminate pertinent data and genetic models that emphasize MD Anderson’s unique research environment. Members are asked to attend regular meetings and to present current work in this setting.
The Center for Genetics and Genomics is one of seven centers within the Institute for Basic Science at MD Anderson. Each center, including the Center for Genetics and Genomics, works on a research theme that encourages participation and interaction among basic, translational and clinical faculty members. One of the first tasks for this center is to identify MD Anderson faculty who have interests and wish to play an active role in establishing and maintaining center activities.
Center for Genetics and Genomics Scholar Program
The Center for Genetics and Genomics Scholar Program was established to entice incoming postdoctoral fellows to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. This award provides salary and research support in the amount of $50,000 per year for a postdoctoral scholar. This is an international program designed to attract applicants who have demonstrated research of outstanding quality.
Applications are welcome from all qualified incoming students. The Center for Genetics and Genomics Scholar Program strongly encourages under-represented populations, including women, under-represented racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with disabilities to apply for this award.
