MSM is committed to promoting the participation and training of underrepresented minority students in research focused on causes of global disparities in biomedical, clinical and health services. The program recruits and trains four postdoctoral fellows over five years. The research is conducted in collaboration with the MSM Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences and the Master of Clinical Research programs.
Members of the Morehouse Postdoctoral Training in Genomics & Hemoglobinopathies will conduct laboratory, clinical and population-based studies that examine interactions between SCD and nutrition, inflammation, vascular biology, susceptibility to infection and possible therapeutic interventions.
The director, professor Jonathan Stiles, Ph.D., and the co-director, associate professor Jacqueline Hibbert, Ph.D., lead a talented faculty specializing in biochemistry, hemoglobinopathies, nutrition, family medicine, pediatrics, community health, preventative medicine, biostatistics and clinical research.
The program involves a partnership between MSM, University of Ghana Medical School Emory University and the Medical College of Georgia.
Currently we have four fellows conducting research in patients from West Africa, North Africa and China.
Acceptance to the MTGHP will be based on the total profile of the applicant. Requirements can be found here.
