Center for a Livable Future Pre-doctoral Fellowship
The Johns Hopkins
Center for a
Livable Future announces the second year of funding for
its Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Program. The program supports
predoctoral students (Ph.D., Sc.D., Dr.P.H.) in any JHU
division (or those applying to a doctoral program at the
time of this application) who are committed to discovery or
application of knowledge about the environmental, economic,
social and health impacts of industrial animal production
practices in this country or abroad.
Students are eligible for support during any stage of
their graduate program. Each fellow will receive a grant
of up to $50,000 that can be used for tuition, stipend
and/or research expenses, depending on individual needs.
The grants may be renewed in subsequent years. Awards for
the 2004-2005 academic year will be announced May 1.
Candidates will be considered based on their academic
abilities and commitment to the goals of the fellowship.
Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged.
Suitable topics include investigations in the
following areas related to and affected by industrial
animal production: environmental issues; public health
consequences, particularly on understudied populations;
international aspects of food production and trade; animal
waste composition and safe disposal; effects of animal feed
formulations on health and food safety; occupational health
effects; food safety and security issues; and policy
development to support sustainable, equitable food

Pilot Project Grants for Molecular Imaging in
Pilot project grant funds are available to support new
innovative projects in molecular imaging. Studies may
involve basic, translational preclinical approaches to the
development of molecular imaging capabilities, broadly
related to cancer detection, prevention, diagnosis or
therapy. Cross-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.
Funds for pilot projects are provided through
institutional and Department of Radiology support to the
NCI-funded Small Animal Imaging Resource Program.
Guidelines for submission of an application follow. An
original and three copies are due to Martin Pomper
(Department of Radiology, Room B-100 Phipps Bldg., 600 N.
Wolfe St.) by April 6. Applicants will be notified by May
The guidelines for application state that awards will
be made for pilot projects or feasibility studies to
develop unique molecular imaging research opportunities or
All faculty members with a cancer-related molecular
imaging project, written in collaboration with a faculty
member from the Department of Radiology, may apply.
Grants will be awards in the range of $15,000 to
$20,000 for a period of one year. Application procedures
are posted at
Members of the Molecular Imaging Center will review
the applications. High priority will be given to innovative
molecular imaging projects that involve significant
interactions between faculty members. Projects can be
high-risk but should be based on sound reasons for
succeeding. For pre-submission inquiries, such as
identifying potential radiology collaborators or other
application-related information, contact Katie O'Neill,
SAIRP grant administrator, 410-614-3020, Room B-100 Phipps

Morgan/Hopkins Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Urban
The Prevention Sciences Research Center at Morgan State
University and the Center for Adolescent Health and the
Health Institute at Johns Hopkins announce the
availability of four postdoctoral research fellowships that
focus on urban health.
Candidates must have defended their doctoral
dissertations in any field related to public health or
substance abuse from an accredited university. Postdoctoral
fellows will collaborate with faculty from both MSU and JHU
in ongoing research projects as well as conduct independent
research on such topics as HIV/AIDS, drugs and alcohol use,
violence, diabetes, hypertension, adolescent health, youth
employment, after-school initiatives, sexual and
reproductive health, immigrant families, health
communication and health disparities.
The MSU Prevention Sciences Research Center studies
the determinants of adverse health outcomes and designs and
implements interventions to prevent them. The JHU Center
for Adolescent Health works in partnership with the
Baltimore community to conduct research that promotes the
transition of youth to healthy adult lifestyles. The
mission of the Urban Health Institute is to marshal the
resources of the university to improve the health and
well-being of the residents of Baltimore via research and
to implement and evaluate evidence-based interventions to
solve urban health problems.
Fellowships are awarded for one year with possible
renewal for a second year. Stipend amount will depend upon
experience (NIH scale). Research and other expenses are
also covered. Applications are due before April 1, and
awards will be made by May 1. Fellowships may begin anytime
after May 1.
