Something else to consider....
I would like to bring to your attention an exciting new Ph.D. program at
Dartmouth Medical School, and hope that you will share this information with
students who are considering pursuing a research career. The Program in
Experimental and Molecular Medicine (PEMM) is now in its third year, having
evolved from our long-standing and successful graduate programs in
Pharmacology, Toxicology and Physiology. We are now actively recruiting
qualified graduate students for the 2009-2010 academic year.
The PEMM graduate program seeks to train the next generation of scientists to
engage in genomic, proteomic, cellular, and systems biology for the purpose of
translating this knowledge into disease treatment and prevention. All
qualified students in the life sciences are encouraged to apply early (by
January 15, 2009) so they can participate in our Interview Weekend on March
6-7, 2009. The Interview Weekend is a two-day opportunity for outstanding
applicants to learn first-hand about the exciting research opportunities
available within our program at Dartmouth.
Students will focus their research in one of the following areas
*Cancer Biology and Molecular Therapeutics
*Molecular Pharmacology, Toxicology and Experimental Therapeutics
Research carried out by faculty and trainees in this program uses the most
advanced experimental approaches to understand the molecular basis and
pathophysiology of disease and to develop new diagnostics and therapies.
The research employs a broad range of biochemical, biological, and molecular
techniques, and interfaces with related disciplines such as biostatistics,
bioinformatics, structural biology, and chemistry. All students are given
thorough instruction in the fundamentals of cell biology, molecular biology,
physiology and pathophysiology, pharmacology, and human genetics. In addition,
there are special courses on designing, implementing and analyzing clinical
trials. Thus, this program provides students with a broad-based understanding
of key biomedical problems and develops their ability to carry out creative
biomedical research. State of the art facilities and substantial external
grant support from Federal, Foundation and industrial sources support our
Our graduate program offers a fostering academic environment while rigorously
preparing students for a successful career in translational research.
have full and guaranteed financial support including a full tuition
and a stipend that is currently $25,500 per year. The Program in Experimental
and Molecular Medicine is an integral part of the Dartmouth Medical School and
the broader Dartmouth College academic community. It is located in the
picturesque upper Connecticut Valley on the border of New Hampshire and
Vermont. We have close ties with the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, an
NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical
Center, the major primary and tertiary care provider for northern New England.
I ask that you please forward this letter to students with potential interest
in our graduate program as well as to all relevant academic advisors at your
institution. We also ask that you keep this program in mind in future years
and continue to refer qualified students. Graduate student candidates should
review our web site (http://dms.dartmouth.edu/pemm) to learn more about this
academic opportunity. Interested students should complete our electronic
application process, as outlined at this web site. To request additional
information, please contact our program via e-mail at:
