I have all other requirements you asked for this grant except for being a US citizen. I am a Canadaian citizen and I am planning to come over to US and reside there for my job.
Can I use any exemption in my case. I already have a PhD from life sciences and I worked closely with microarray, affymetrix, real-time PCR, Tissue microaaray and lots of high troughput methods of protein screening. This course will be extremely useful for me and I would be really appreciative if I can use it toward my goal to become an expert scientist in bioinformatics.
Please notify me if I am eligible so that I can send you my CV. I just got the approval for my paper to be published in Oncogene reagrding all these bioinformatics I did for my PhD.
