Specific Work in India
In 2006, SBRI established the Seattle-India Joint Research Training Program “Research Training on Intracellular Pathogens.” Funded by the Fogarty International Center, this program provides promising Indian Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scientists with advanced training opportunities in malaria, leishmaniasis, tuberculosis and other intracellular pathogens. Fellowships fund 1-2 years of collaborative training at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) or the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) and a laboratory at the University of Washington (UW) or Seattle Biomedical Research Institute (SBRI).
