PhRMA Informatics – Pre Doctoral Fellowships

Program Summary

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.
