The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) announces a new predoctoral institutional training grant program in biostatistics. The purpose of the program is to provide support for predoctoral training in biostatistical theory and evolving methodologies related to basic biomedical research, including, but not limited to, bioinformatics, genetics, molecular biology, cellular processes, and physiology, as well as epidemiological, clinical and behavioral studies. The goal is to ensure that a workforce of biostatisticians with a deep understanding of statistical theory and new methodologies is available to assume leadership roles related to the Nations biomedical, clinical, and behavioral research needs. Implementation will depend on the integration of biostatistics and basic biological sciences to create effective interdisciplinary training grant programs. The Biostatistics Training Grant Program is administrated by NIGMS with funds contributed by the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the National Human Genome Research Institute, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the National Institute of Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
