Dear Xenopus community, 

The application for the 2017 Whitman Center Fellowships at the Marine Biological Laboratory is now open. The deadline for the application is December 15, 2016. Xenopus researchers are encouraged to apply if you would like to come and use NXR resources (or MBL resources) for your research. 


In the past several summers there have been over 10 awards given to Xenopus researchers. The summer is an exciting time at the MBL and you have the opportunity to interact with a number of different investigators from around the world. In addition, the MBL is now offering fellowships for more junior investigators. Overall, the MBL has been very happy with the researchers coming to the NXR these past two summers and are expecting more applications from Xenopus researchers. The awards cover your housing for the time you are here. So if you’d like to come and do some X. laevis or X. tropicalis work, use the various transgenic lines or create some mutant lines then take advantage of this opportunity. 

Please visit the webpage for more details about the application. You will require to coordinate your application with me as the review panel wants to make sure each individual fits with the resident research program. Feel free to contact me for more details. 

Hope to hear from some of you
