NIBIB and HHMI announce graduate biomedical training awards
Date:9/12/2012

Three projects aimed at enhancing interdisciplinary training for graduate students have won awards from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of the National Institutes of Health, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).The awards are part of a joint Interfaces Initiative partnership program that recognizes the importance of interdisciplinary research for the advancement of biomedical science.

These Training Innovation Program supplements (TIPs) are part of the HHMI-NIBIB Interfaces Initiative partnership program. The supplements respond to the growing need to share successful training strategies among biomedical research institutions developing graduate-level research training programs in emerging fields at the intersection of the life and physical sciences. The resources developed through the grants will be disseminated to the broader research community.

The Interfaces Initiative Program was founded in 2005, providing grants to train biomedical investigators to conduct research across disciplines. In the first phase, HHMI provided 10 $1 million awards. In 2008, NIBIB continued support with 10 more grants worth $16 million over five years.

The following TIPs awardees were selected for their innovative concepts to capitalize on successful aspects of their existing programs and to make them useful to the greater scientific training community:

1. Dr. El Fakhri, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston (plus Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology)
Project title: Interactive Web-based Training in Biomedical Imaging Physics
Project overview: Development of free, web-based video lectures that provide the basics on bioimaging and serve as an online reference manual describing recent developments in the field.

2. Arthur Lander, University of California, Irvine (UCI) '/>"/>
