Test This is a unique collaborative training program in genetics between The Johns Hopkins University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine and two major institutions in Beijing, Peking Union Medical College and Peking University. This program trains students, researchers, and professionals from the People’s Republic of China on the principles of genetic research of complex disorders such as birth defects and chronic diseases. The Training Advisory Committee and faculty from the U.S. have expertise in clinical genetics, molecular genetics, statistical genetics, population genetics, bioinformatics, and epidemiology. Training in the ethical, social, and legal implications of human genetics research is also an integral part of the curriculum. Short-term trainees from China are enrolled in established courses such as the Graduate Summer Institute of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Short Course in Medical and Experimental Mammalian Genetics co-sponsored by The Johns Hopkins Institute of Genetic Medicine and The Jackson Laboratory at Bar Harbor. Long-term trainees are enrolled in a Masters of Public Health, Master of Science in Genetic Counseling, or postdoctoral laboratory research training. Postdoctoral fellows can receive training in Clinical Molecular Genetics, Biochemical Genetics, or Cytogenetics. Predoctoral students are enrolled in degree programs for a Ph.D. in Human Genetics and Molecular Biology, Epidemiology, or Biostatistics and others. After the training, fellows and students will return to China to develop their own research in Beijing and seed genetics research in China. Johns Hopkins and Mount Sinai offer strong training programs in epidemiology, biostatistics, and bioethics appropriate for scientists from developing countries.

The International Collaborative Genetics Research Training Program is funded through The Fogarty International Center (FIC), National Human Genome Research Institute, and National Institute on Aging, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH D43 TW06176).
