Burroughs Wellcome Fund award creates new Ph.D. path linking laboratory and population sciences
Date:11/18/2008

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) has selected Emory University for a $2.5 million, five-year award aimed at training new biomedical scientists whose expertise in research and teaching will bridge laboratory and population sciences.

The Emory program is one of three new BWF programs funded nationally within the Institutional Program Unifying Population and Laboratory Based Sciences. The other two programs will be located at the University of California, Los Angeles (metabolic diseases) and the University of Texas, Houston Health Science Center (gene-environment interaction).

The training awards, focused on understanding and improving human health, were created to connect population and computational sciences with laboratory-based biological sciences. The goal is to establish training programs that partner researchers in schools of medicine with those in schools of public health, as well as with a diverse range of other partners.

Emory's program, housed within the Emory University Graduate School, will create a new doctoral pathway called Human Health: Molecules to Mankind (M2M), with the theme of "Understanding human health: integrating biology, behaviors, environments and populations." Each doctoral student will train within two existing PhD programs, one in a laboratory science and one in a population science.

Kenneth Brigham, MD, director of the Emory/Georgia Tech Predictive Health Institute, will direct the M2M program with Michele Marcus, PhD, director of graduate studies and professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health.

"The M2M program will create a bridge between these two areas of laboratory and population sciences, with the goal of creating a new kind of biomedical scientist," says Brigham. "With Emory's emphasis on cross-disciplinary education and research, and with a strategic plan that includes predictive health, global health, and computational and life s
