Genetics Immersion Program (GIP) - High School Program

The Department of Human Genetics is excited to introduce the Genetics Immersion Program (GIP), which launched Summer 2022.  This program immerses high school students in hands-on genetics research for a period of 6 weeks and provides them with a summer stipend.  The goals of the program are to give students an introduction to genetics and genomics, build their problem-solving skills, and allow them to explore their potential as scientists.  High school rising juniors and seniors will be matched with Human Genetics graduate student mentors who will guide them on a research project throughout the summer program.
