The Foundation's Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program was designed to provide four-year postdoctoral research awards to historically disadvantaged physicians who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine, to improving the health of underserved populations, and to furthering the understanding and elimination of health disparities.The purpose of this project is to increase the number of minority medical faculty with a high likelihood of achieving senior academic positions in the nation's medical schools. Four-year fellowships are awarded to candidates selected on a competitive basis for research under the supervision of a senior faculty member at an academic center noted for the training of young faculty. Preparation of minority faculty to assume leadership roles in academic medicine should contribute to a continuing commitment in the nation's medical schools to increase the number of minority physicians in the U.S. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Ph.D., M.D., will conduct a project to characterize the relative roles of CBP and p300 in insulin gene transcription under basal and stimulated conditions.
