The Medical Research Scholars Program needs your help to prepare a new generation of scientific leaders who will spearhead revolutionary advances in health. Resources are needed to support scholar stipends, educational programs, attendance at medical conferences and leadership training seminars.
The incoming 2013-2014 class of the NIH Medical Research Scholars Programs is diverse. There are 45 medical students, 25 males and 20 females, representing 32 different medical schools in the U.S.
The future promises remarkable advances in biomedical research. To attain that goal, we need broad transformative training for clinician scientists. It is time to invest boldly in new ways of learning so that the next generation of innovative thinkers can open new frontiers in knowledge and transform medicine.
I know how important early exposure to research can be...the experience changed my life and was the catalyst in launching my career.
Launched in 2012, the Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) provides one year of intensive training for medical, dental and veterinary students at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
The opening event at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History for the exhibit Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code featured remarks by Dr. Kirk Johnson, Sant Director, National Museum of Natural History, Dr. Wayne Clough, Secretary, Smithsonian Institution, Dr.
Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code celebrates the 10th anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome Project (HGP). The HGP was a 13 year effort to identify all the genes and determine the sequence of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA.
To complement “Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code,” the National Human Genome Research Institute, the National Museum of Natural History, and The Smithsonian Associates have partnered to develop a series of nine educational programs, including lectures, symposia, discussion panels and informal social gatherings.
Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code also celebrates the 60th anniversary of the description by James Watson and Francis Crick of the double helix structure of DNA. The surprisingly simple structure answered important questions about how genes work and provided the foundation for discoveries in genetics and genomics of today.
On June 14, 2013, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. opened the high-tech, high-intensity exhibition Genome: Unlocking Life's Code, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of researchers producing the first complete human genome sequence - the genetic blueprint of the human body.
