    • The OSU HHMI Med into Grad Scholars Program Joanna Groden Ph.D. COM, Associate Dean for Basic Science Ginny Bumgardner M.D., Ph.D. COM, Associate Dean for Research Education & Graduate Studies
    • Howard Hughes Medical Institute
      • The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is a medical research organization dedicated to biomedical research and science education.
      • Its principal objectives are the advancement of fundamental knowledge in the biomedical sciences and the application of that knowledge to alleviate disease and promote health.
      • Through its grants and special programs, HHMI seeks to strengthen science education and biomedical research by supporting current and future leaders to advance scientific knowledge, develop educational products, and implement outstanding educational practices.
    • Program Purpose
      • T he Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Med into Grad Initiative is designed to prepare Ph.D. researchers to conduct research at the interface of biomedical science and clinical medicine.
      • Graduates of these programs are expected to expedite the clinical application of discoveries in biomedical science to improve human health and to create future successful research partnerships with physicians.
      • The goal is to augment the biomedical applications of our traditional basic science research programs at OSU through the COM and through our newly funded CTSA.

      • Core Leadership Team:
      • Carlo Croce MD, Larry Schlesinger MD, Richard Hart PhD, Daniel R. Schoenberg PhD, John Oberdick PhD, Jeff Parvin PhD, Virginia Sanders PhD, and Rebecca Jackson MD.
      • The centerpiece for the curricular aspects of the proposal is the COM Integrated Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (IBGP) which offers a translational area of research emphasis.
    • Eligibility Requirements
      • This program is offered on a competitive basis annually to 6 exceptional pre-candidacy graduate students at OSU:
      • (1) who will have completed at least one year of training in their graduate program and
      • (2) whose dissertation research is relevant to at least one of 6 highlighted scientific disciplines including genetics, microbial biology, biomedical engineering, RNA biology, neuroscience or computational biology.
      • MD PhD dual degree students are not eligible.
    • Design of the Training Program
        • Focused preclinical training in the pathobiology of human disease relevant to the HHMI scholar’s research focus
        • Translational Science Coursework through course offerings in the COM Integrated Biomedical Science Graduate Program
        • Exposure/access to translational research coursework and core resources in the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS)
        • Mentored experiences within clinical services related to dissertation/disciplinary research by faculty in the OSU medical center (OSUMC) Appointment of a COM faculty member to the scholar’s dissertation committee
