HHMI awards $3.5 million to continue support for postgraduate courses at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory.
New grants totaling more than $3.5 million will continue HHMI support for postgraduate education at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) and the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL).
The four-year grants include $1.32 million to CSHL and $2.2 million to MBL. At CSHL, the award will support 10 laboratory and 5 lecture courses, including new courses on stem cells, proteomics and neurobiology. The grant to MBL will support 13 courses, including a biology of parasitism course that will be made available through special fellowships to HHMI's international research scholars.
Over the past 15 years. HHMI has awarded a total of $10.4 million to CSHL and $8.2 million to MBL to support postgraduate courses that span the biological disciplines and the computational and physical sciences.
"The courses at Cold Spring Harbor and Woods Hole are of the highest quality and have been shown to significantly impact the careers of many of those who participated in them," says William R. Galey, who heads HHMI's graduate grants program. "Our support continues our commitment to exceptional graduate education."
