BROAD Institute of MIT and Harvard
Broad scientists use genomic information to study human evolution, population and disease genetics, cellular networks, and the biology and evolution of pathogens. Our research draws on students and scientists from a wide variety of backgrounds, including: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, and Computational Biology. The Summer Research Program in Genomics is designed for non-graduating underrepresented minority (African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans (including Alaska Natives), or natives of the Pacific U.S. Territories) undergraduate students with an interest in genomics and biomedical research. Students will spend the summer in a laboratory at the Broad Institute, where they will perform original scientific research. The program also features components to support both academic and scientific growth, including scientific seminars, a journal club, and workshops on scientific writing, graduate admission, and fellowships. Housing, travel, and a stipend are provided.
