The Summer Research Program in Genomics (SRPG)
The 2016 online application for the Summer Research Program in Genomics is now available.
The Summer Research Program in Genomics, funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute, is designed for undergraduate students who have a commitment to research and an interest in genomics. The program has a strong record of success in helping students to nurture their passion for research and succeed in graduate school and scientific careers. Students spend the summer performing original computational or experimental-based research in labs across the Broad Institute’s research areas, from cancer to infectious disease to computational biology. At the program’s conclusion, students deliver oral and poster presentations on their research projects.
The program features a rich curriculum outside the lab that emphasizes career development, personal development, and teamwork in a small cohort. Our curriculum includes an intensive scientific communication course, faculty seminars with leading scientists in biomedicine, a two-day GRE prep course, workshops that prepare students for the graduate school application process, and seminars that address topics on diversity and inclusion in the sciences.
Features of the program:
SRPG is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) to help increase diversity in the sciences. Students from groups that are underrepresented in the sciences are encouraged to apply. These groups include American Indians or Alaska Natives, blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders, as well as individuals with disabilities.
The application deadline for SRPG 2016 is Monday, February 1, 2016.
