s talented students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the investigative process, increase their aptitude for research, collaborate directly with faculty and strengthen their dedication to a career in medical, biological or life sciences," said Filip Banovac, M.D., SIRF research policy division chair. Banovac, an interventional radiologist with Georgetown University Hospitals, Washington, D.C., noted that HHMI funds up to 66 applicants, and SIRF's commitment allows for the funding of one high-achieving, medical student
engaged in full-time research at the interface of the disciplines of science, medicine and engineering. HHMI also has collaborations with other organizations to fund additional students.
The HHMI Medical Research Fellows Program enables medical, dental, and veterinary students from schools in the U.S. to spend a year conducting basic, translational or applied biomedical research full time at any school or nonprofit research institution in the United States—except at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. Research may be conducted abroad if the fellow's mentor is affiliated with a U.S. institution. Selected fellows receive a stipend and fellow's and research allowances.
The HHMI fellowship application process requires that applicants have selected a solid biomedical research project (either new or ongoing) and established a relationship with a mentor who has strong grant support and a solid training and publications track record. The application deadline is Jan. 11, 2012. A multilevel evaluation and review process will determine the program's final awardees. Acceptance letters are expected to be sent out in March 2012; the year-long fellowship will begin in the summer of 2012. Students may apply during any year of medical school; however, applicants in the last year of medical school must defer graduation until completion of the fellowship.
