The NIH announced yesterday that it is spending $20m to train global health researchers from many disciplines and UW is the lead for one of five consortiums.
UW Today story:<http://www.washington.edu/news/articles/uw-leads-nih-funded-consortium-to-train-global-health-researchers>
"The UW is the leader of a consortium, including University of Hawaii, University of Michigan and University of Minnesota that will receive about $4 million over five years to support the training activities of fellows.
Joseph Zunt, assistant professor in global health and the principal investigator for the UW-led consortium, said the grant will provide new opportunities for training 12-15 U.S. and international doctoral students and post-doctoral trainees each year in international settings.
"The fellows will have outstanding binational mentoring," he said.
