The HGSC-G/GREAT (Genetics/Genomics Research Education And Training) Summer Research Program is accepting applications! This is a research program designed to interest African Americans; Hispanic Americans; Native Americans; and Pacific Islanders in genetics/genomics careers. Our goal is to increase the number of these underrepresented groups with Ph.Ds in this field. We offer research projects in bioinformatics; molecular genetics; and engineering. We are beginning to offer more bioinformatics research opportunities to our program participants. Life science majors with an interest in coding or CS/engineering majors with programming backgrounds interested in medical research will be given priority.
Program eligibility: We accept undergraduate junior and seniors from the above mentioned groups. Students should also have a 3.0 GPA (or above) and major in one of the following: chemistry; biology; computer science; mechanical or electrical engineering to name a few. This internship is a paid; 9 week; residual program.
Deadline: March 3rd, 2017
