Center for Environmental Genetics Career Development Program              

The CEG Career Development Program has two distinct but related tracks to support the development of the next generation of environmental health sciences scientists. These are basic, translational, or clinical investigators who have the passion, optimism, and technological skills to conduct transdisciplinary research to advance EHS research with avant-garde discoveries. The first pathway is the Next-Generation Biomedical Investigator (NGBI), designed to assist junior faculty in their transition to environmental health science researchers.

The second pathway is the New Investigator Scholar award, designed to assist clinicians and health practitioners learn environmental health science concepts, and bring these concepts into translational research practice. University of Cincinnati or Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center faculty who have an interest in Environmental Health Sciences research are encouraged to contact the CEG office for more information.  Support is provided to students for dissertation research expenses, career development, travel to professional meetings, and other activities.

Nominations are being accepted for  2013 New Investigator Scholars through April 15, 2013.
