Bioinformatics in Public Health Fellowship Program
The Bioinformatics in Public Health (BPH) Fellowship aims to train and prepare bioinformaticians to apply their expertise within public health and design tools to aid existing public health personnel in the use of bioinformatics. The BPH fellowship program was developed to meet the need for expertise in the analysis of the vast amounts of genetic data that are generated through molecular sequencing techniques and to harness that data to solve public health problems. In the fellowship’s current form, fellows will be paired with a complimentary CDC infectious disease laboratory which will serve as a host laboratory. In future iterations, the fellowship will be expanded to provide the opportunity for public health laboratories to serve as host laboratories.
Newborn Screening and Genetics Laboratory Fellowship
The Newborn Screening and Genetics (NBSG) Laboratory Fellowship is designed for doctoral level (PhD or ScD) scientists to conduct high-priority research in newborn screening with emphasis on the practical application of relevant technologies, methodologies and practices. The fellowship is a one-to-two year program sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Newborn Screening and Molecular Biology Branch (CDC-NSMBB) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL). The selected candidate will be based in a hosting state public health laboratory.
