Underrepresented Biomedical Researcher (UBR) Faculty Summit


The Underrepresented Biomedical Researcher Faculty Summit will be held by Baylor College of Medicine's All of Us Evenings with Genetics Research Program at the Hilton Houston Plaza/Medical Center Hotel in Houston, Texas, on May 19-21, 2022. The summit is seeking postdocs, graduate students, or research associates as data science coaches. Coaches will attend the summit and provide computational support helping attendees with using the NIH's All of Us Research Hub and All of Us data. Training will be provided. Coaches will sign up for slots that work best for their schedule during the three days of the summit. 

Familiarity with Python and/or R and the Jupyter Notebook environment and a strong interest in statistical and genetic analyses on biomedical data are desired. Because this is a compensated position, coaches must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

The application deadline is March 25, 2022.

CIBR Center Seed Grant Awards


Each year in early Fall, since 2011, the CIBR Center for Computational and Integrative Biomedical Research has offered a Seed Grant Award opportunity sponsored by Baylor College of Medicine. The purpose of these awards is to support the mission of the CIBR Center by fostering novel collaborations that bridge the translational gap from data to models, and from models to drug discovery and personalized therapy. The CIBR Seed Grant Awards aim specifically to bring together research questions and methods from two or more labs that include substantive new analytical, statistical, or computational components. Successful proposals should aim to generate preliminary data leading to new R01 submissions by the following October.

The application review and selection process is overseen by CIBR faculty members and qualified Baylor scientists. Typically, six awards are granted at $15,000 each in unrestricted funds to be expended by the end of the following fiscal year. The awards are open to all Baylor faculty members; adjunct faculty, research faculty and instructors are eligible as collaborators.

Previous awardees may reapply for additional funding for up to four years or apply for funds on a new project. Applications are reviewed and scored on an NIH 1-9 scale.
