National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) Education and Community Involvement Branch (ECIB) The NHGRI Health Disparities Visiting Faculty Program provides researchers focused on genomics and health disparities with the opportunity to spend a 6 to 12 month period at NHGRI. Visiting faculty will work with senior or associate investigators in NHGRI laboratories located in Bethesda, Md. or Baltimore. Visiting faculty will have the opportunity to learn new technologies, develop research collaborations, or conduct sabbatical research. Basic and social science researchers may access NHGRI's laboratories, core facilities, clinics and training programs for study in any area of human genetic disease including the ethical, legal, and social implications of such research. Researchers are expected to share their skills and experience upon return to their home institutions and applications will be evaluated based on this criterion. Contact Information Michelle R.J.
