Biomedical Informatics Funding
The National Library of Medicine has renewed funding for
the Informatics Training Program in the School of
Medicine's Division of Health Sciences Informatics. With
the five-year award, the division will retool its
informatics training program, which will focus on public
The program is actively seeking pre-doctoral and
post-doctoral (PhD, DrPH, ScD, MD) candidates for
matriculation in July 2007. Students enrolling in the
program will find new resources for the faculty, new
courses and new programs for study. The award supplements
the effort already under way, funded by the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation, to define informatics training for both
public health and informatics students.
Progress on these efforts and information about weekly
seminars will be available at

Collaborative Intervention Pilot Funds
Pilot study funding — $20,000 each to three studies
this year — is now available through the Center for
Collaborative Intervention Research at the
School of Nursing.
The center and the annual funding of pilot studies
stimulate research alliances among health care disciplines,
including nursing, public health and medicine.
JHU faculty may apply for 2007-2008 funding by
completing an online Intent to Submit form by Feb. 1. The
funds are available to doctorally prepared full-time
faculty from disciplines across JHU who collaborate with
SoN faculty as members of their research team. New
investigators or experienced investigators moving in new
directions are given priority, although all studies must
focus on some aspect of intervention research.

resources provided by the center, go to the CCIR Web page
