The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) announces the availability of funds for Administrative Supplements. These funds are intended to support NHGRI-funded projects at domestic institutions to provide genomics research experiences for graduates of genetic counseling master’s programs. NHGRI intends the supplements to foster MS-level genetic counselors’ involvement in genomic research.
Genetic counselors are increasingly working as core members of genomic medicine research teams. There is a desire among many genetic counselors to supplement the research education they received in their master’s programs so that they might become more effective members of the research team, assisting with the conduct of research and at times contributing secondary research questions designed to explore implications of living with genomic risk. Moreover, there is a need for genetic counselors to lead research efforts to inform the most effective delivery of genetics/genomics services, and thus a need for additional skills.
The research education of the participants supported by the supplements will incorporate didactic, research, and career development elements to prepare individuals for careers that will have a significant impact on the genetic counseling-related research needs of the Nation.
