NHGRI Establishes a Mailing List
for Genome Funding Opportunities

July 1998

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has initiated a mailing list to disseminate announcements of interest to investigators.

The primary purpose will be to announce funding opportunities for grants from NHGRI, because former communication methods (e.g., publication in the NIH Guide and posting on the Web site) are not reaching a wide enough audience. This mailing list will be used to send a brief summary of Program Announcements (PA) and Requests for Applications (RFA) with a pointer to the appropriate Web page for those interested in obtaining the full text.

The list will also notify the community about new policies specific to NHGRI grantees, but NOT for general NIH policies. The use of this list will be infrequent, to avoid cluttering e-mail accounts.

This mailing list will not include announcements about the Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) Research Program because the ELSI program maintains a separate e-mail list. To be included in the list for ELSI announcements, please contact ELSI at: ELSI@nhgri.nih.gov.

Technically, this mailing list is set up as a LISTSERV list to allow people to 'subscribe' or 'unsubscribe' themselves. However, only NHGRI staff will be able to send messages to the list. List members will NOT be able to send messages and will NOT be able to see the identity of other addressees.

To subscribe to this mailing list, please follow these instructions:

  • Address an e-mail message to:
  • Leave the subject line blank.
  • Insert the following text into the message:

Note: Type your name in place of YOURNAME. The listserv will obtain your e-mail address from the "From" address of your e-mail message.

Do not include anything else in the body of the message.
