ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

The Summer Institute hosted by the Augusta University (AU) is designed to basic and clinical research using functional and translational genomics techniques. The goal of this program is to train junior-level faculty to do research related to blood disorders such as hemoglobinopathies and red blood cell diseases. Functional and translational genomic approaches will be used to investigate mechanisms of globin gene regulation and proteomics to study the red blood cell membrane function in health and disease. During the Institute, Mentees will learn how to access public databases and to perform basic data mining procedures.
The program objectives include:

  • Providing hands-on bench research training in the areas of cell and molecular biology and proteomics.
  • Teaching practical approaches to design and conduct translational clinical research.
  • Establishing partnerships between Mentees and Mentors based on mutual research interests.
  • Conducting a grants workshop in collaboration with NHLBI staff to assist Mentees with developing a research grant and advise on identifying funding sources to promote a sustainable and independent research program for career advancement.
  • Peer-mentoring and social networks to facilitate scientific collaboration, professional development, and social support.

HOW DOES THE AU PRIDE- FTG PRIDE PROGRAM WORK?

  • This all-expense-paid training opportunity brings participants to Augusta University for 2 to 3 weeks for two summers beginning in 2015.
  • Mentor-Mentee partnerships will be chosen based on
    1) Research interests,
    2) Mentor’s experience in research and grant writing, and
    3) Establishing long-term collaborations.
  • FTGBD Cohort 1 Arrives

    The first cohort of PRIDE scholars at Georgia Regents University.

  • Mentees will make a visit to the mentor’s institution and participate in annual PRIDE Workshop in Washington, DC at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.
  • Didactic curriculums designed by teaching faculty from multiple disciplines.
  • Special emphasis will be placed on the development of grantsmanship skills and specific research projects with mentors to improve fundability.
