The NHGRI Extramural Grant Portfolio: Using Different Approaches to Fund Genomics Research

Eric Green In the July issue of The Genomics Landscape, NHGRI Director Eric Green discusses the different approaches NHGRI uses to fund genomics research, among them RFAs and PAs to guide extramural applicants relative to the institute's programmatic interests, and managed consortia that bring together investigators to tackle large research problems. There's also information about the new NCI director, the expansion of the G2C2 website and an educational workshop on Henrietta Lacks.
 

NHGRI oral history collection features influential genomics researchers 

Genomics History timelineA collection of oral histories released today by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) features candid conversations with pioneering scientists involved in the Human Genome Project and a rare discussion with all three institute directors since the organization was established in 1989. In each oral history, influential scientists offer extensive insight into science and medicine, as well as biographical details and commentary on the inner workings of NHGRI and its foundational initiatives that transformed the way people think about the human genome. 
 

We need your input: dbGaP Data Submission and Access Process

MelanomaNHGRI believes that broadly sharing research data will result in maximum public benefit, and we're committed to providing researchers with access to genomic data. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Genomic Data Sharing Policy establishes a system to promote data sharing, while also protecting research participants involved in genomics studies. We need your help to improve one of NIH's central data sharing tools for human genomic data: the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes, or dbGaP.
