Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine Fellowship

National NHLBI · February 20, 2024 A goal of the NHLBI TOPMed program is to generate scientific resources that will advance precision medicine in the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. The TOPMed program generates a collection of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data (see details at https://topmed.nhlbi.nih.gov/) from over 200,000 well-phenotyped individuals and integrates these data with multi-omics, behavioral, imaging, environmental, and clinical data to detect and assess molecular “profiles” associated with health and diseases. This data is available for access by researchers in the BioDataCatalyst and dbGaP databases. The goal of the TOPMed Fellowship program is to ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists pursue further studies or careers in genomic data science research. With this fellowship program, TOPMed seeks to facilitate the career advancement and/or transition of participants to the next steps in their scientific careers and to develop a cadre of diverse scientists capable of leading genomic data science research in the areas relevant to heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. There are many benefits that result from a diverse NHLBI-supported scientific workforce, including: fostering scientific innovation; enhancing global competitiveness; contributing to robust learning environments; improving the quality of research; advancing research in health disparity populations; improving health equity, and enhancing public trust. Therefore, the NHLBI recognizes a unique and compelling need for its precision medicine program to promote inclusive excellence in genomics and its data sciences research workforce. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support (see NOT-OD-20-031). More about this award
