2) UO Fulbright-Hays Dissertation Award – internal deadline 6/19

All UO student applications, reference forms and other forms must be submitted via the US/ED’s G5 application system by 12 noon PST on Thursday, June 19th to insure timely campus review and onward transmittal of our official institutional submission to US/ED in Washington, DC by 6/24/14.

Full information on the award and the application process is included via the link provided below. Interested graduate students should review materials at the site very closely in order to determine eligibility and, if eligible, plan effectively for a strong and timely submission. Stephen Wooten is willing and able to help students with general support/advising for the award, but academic advisors/supervisors are going to be the best and most effective resources.

Join Dr. Bruce Bowerman for a user-friendly introduction to the structure, nature, and workings of the human genome. Learn how research on non-human organisms helps scientists gain insights that apply to humans as well.

Dr. Bowerman is head of the Department of Biology at the University of Oregon, where he previously served as Director of the Institute of Molecular Biology. First at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, and now at UO, he researches early embryonic development with a focus on cell polarity and cell division, funded by the National Institutes of Health.
