Performance Improvement 2009. How Does the International Collaborative Genetics Research Training Program Work?


This study examined the implementation and processes of the International Collaborative Genetics Research Training Program. The program enables U.S. universities and non-profit research institutions to support training for scientists from developing countries in human genetics research, in areas that are relevant to their home countries’ needs. The review helped guide the development of the program’s new Request for Proposals; and results were shared with program partners, sponsors, investigators, and students.

The experts expressed a consensus view that the idea and vision for the Genetics program was timely and appropriate.
