The goal of the Informatics Program is to promote the use of informatics in an integrative approach to the understanding of biological and disease processes. Informatics awards are intended to support career development for scientists engaged in cutting-edge research in information technology and experimental validation, thus advancing the integration of molecular and clinical approaches into problems of pharmacological concern.
This program provides up to two years of stipend funding to support the research activities of the doctoral program and only after course work has been completed. An applicant must be a full-time student and the Department Chair or graduate officer is expected to verify the applicant's doctoral candidacy.
Due to the high demand for this fellowship, the PhRMA Foundation will accept only two applications per academic institution.
The award is made to the university on behalf of the fellow. The fellowship provides a stipend of $20,000 a year payable quarterly for a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years. Of the $20,000 awarded annually, up to $1,000 a year may be used for incidentals directly associated with the thesis research preparation (e.g., secretarial help, artwork, books, travel, etc.).
