doing research in biology from another field

Thu Apr 1 10:03:36 EST 1993

In response to several inquiries, I am posting a list of Schools,
together with the Principal Investigator, that have Molecular
Biophysics Training Grants funded by NIGMS.  These are to support
graduate training leading to the Ph.D. degree.  For more
information contact the Graduate School at the School listed.

As noted in my earlier posting, one goal of the program is to
atrract students with "no traditional" backgrounds into the
field.  Especially welcome are students with strong quantitative
training, math, physics, chemistry, computer science, etc.
Experience has shown that is tends to be easier to teach students
biology than the other way around.

I should also add that in order to qualify for support from these
grants you must be either a US citizen or hold a "green" card.
