A limited number of CBI predoctoral fellowships, funded by the Institute of General Medicine (GM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are available to second year graduate students in the Chemistry or Biomedical Graduate Studies Graduate Groups who have chosen a thesis laboratory with one of the 29 trainers in the program. Students who are awarded fellowships are identified as “CBI Fellows". Requests for Applications (RFAs) are solicited from CBI trainers in the Fall semester of each year and, if awarded, can be initiated anytime between January 1 and June 1 of the following year.
The microscope in the image belonged to William E. Horner, M.D., a collaborator with Caspar Wistar, M.D., in the early 1800s.
Dr. Horner, a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of the use of microscopes in anatomical and medical research. He authored Special Anatomy and Histology, a seminal text on the subject.
