Drawing on complementary strengths, the University of California, San Diego and The Scripps Research Institute have formed a new consortium with a big mission: to map cells in space and time. The consortium will offer fellowship funding for 10 to 12 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to work on collaborative projects that build bridges between the campuses and different disciplines to assemble and simulate a virtual model of a cell, down to an atomic level of detail.
