JIMB is now funding eight Ph.D. candidates as part of a unique biometrology training program, starting in the 2015-16 academic year. Trainees are from a broad array of Ph.D. programs in Stanford's Schools of Engineering and Medicine; each student is nominated and selected based on the relevance of their research to biological metrology. JIMB expects to support two new second-year students each year. Activities include monthly research presentations by the trainees, biweekly presentations by invited speakers from the industry and Stanford, and internships with local companies.
Seed Grant Program
JIMB provides direct support for basic and translational biometrology research.
An initial round of grants was awarded in May 2016. We will be announcing another round either in 2017 or 2018.
Basic Grants provide $50K direct per year for two years of basic research supporting or advancing biometrology.
Translational Grants provide $50K in direct costs for one year to convert a biomeasurement tool into something practical that enables others to better practice their work.
