The Amgen Scholars Program at Institut Pasteur

Інформація: The goal of the Amgen Scholars Program at Institut Pasteur (ASP-IP) is to provide scholars an international laboratory experience during two months in summer. Participating in the daily life of a research group will encourage and inspire students to pursue a scientific career. The program also includes non-laboratory activities, social programs, general scientific training, discussions and interactions with scientists of different cultures and origins. Together with the practical scientific experience, this program will make an unforgettable experience for all participants.

Speciality:
Biochemistry,Bioinformatics,Cellular Biology,Developmental Biology,Epidemiology,Genetics &Genomics,Immunology,Microbiology,Mycology,Neurosciences,Parasitology,Structural Biology,Vaccinology,Virology

Requirements:
Applicants to the ASP-IP must
1) be undergraduate students who:
- are registered in colleges or universities in Europe
- will not have graduated from their second cycle, according to the Bologna Process, in Summer 2017. In other words, students able to enroll in a PhD program in Fall 2017 are NOT eligible for this program.
- for medical students: eligible applicants must have not completed their fourth year of studies prior to termination of the programme in September.
- first year students are not eligible at the Institut Pasteur.

2) have:
- a strong record of academic performance;
- an interest in pursuing a PhD.

Prior research experience is not required.

Budget:
Scholars will receive a total stipend of € 1300 to cover living expenses.Non-local Scholars may claim up to € 450 as travel expenses for their travel to Paris. To receive the reimbursement of travel expenses, students will need to provide original receipts and validated boarding passes.

National Cancer Institute Program: The Role of Mobile Genetic Elements in Cancer

Інформація: The overall goal of this program is to encourage applications to investigate mechanisms regulating the expression and activity of mobile genetic elements, including long terminal repeat (LTR) and non-LTR retroelements, in cancer. For example, although long interspersed element-1 (LINE-1 or L1) retroelements are active in many cancers whether somatic L1 insertions lead to cancer cell heterogeneity and/or adaptive phenotypes that confer growth or survival advantages during cancer evolution or response to therapy is not clear. Similarly, how human endogenous viruses (HERVs) affect cancer processes is also not well understood. In an effort to address this knowledge gap, this program invites research proposals that specifically investigate mechanisms regulating the expression and activity of mobile genetic elements in the context of cell transformation and assess the impact of their activity on tumor heterogeneity, cancer evolution, and response to therapy.

Speciality:
oncology, genetics, microbiology

Requirements:
to have an experience in cancer research

Budget:
Direct costs are limited to $275,000 over a two-year project period, with no more than $200,000 in direct costs allowed in any single year.

National Cancer Institute Program: Gene Fusions in Pediatric Sarcomas

Інформація: The overall goal of this program is to encourage the submission of research grant applications to investigate the molecular mechanisms by which oncogenic fusion genes and their gene products contribute to pediatric sarcoma initiation, progression, and metastasis. Better understanding of the molecular pathways activated by chromosomal translocations in pediatric sarcomas, and their relationship to oncogenesis and tumor progression, can elucidate mechanisms of cancer pathogenesis and potentially lead to novel therapeutics.

Speciality:
oncology, genetics

Requirements:
to have an experience in cancer research

Budget:
Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
