I've heard alot about funding and programs to encourage medics to go into research... does anyone know of any which encourage researchers to learn more about medicine? One I heard of is the Harvard SCSP program, but I don't know much about it. I'm currently in my second year of my PhD at Cambridge University. I'm studying with Micheal Ashburner and David Lomas and am working on setting up drosophila models to study human diseases associated with serine protease inhibitors (serpins), such as emphysema, dementia, thrombosis, and alzheimer's. I like it alot, but would like to migrate from Drosophila to humans after this, so I'm sure I'd really benefit from a stronger medical background. Thanks to anyone who knows anything about this.
