This year's course is for high school and community college faculty members teaching genetics, biology, or related science courses.
NHGRI Short Course in Genomics
The NHGRI Short Course in Genomics, held on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland, offers faculty the opportunity to hear lectures and receive teaching resources from leading NHGRI and NIH researchers, clinicians, and staff, to discuss ways to incorporate genomics content into their classrooms and to participate in tours of NIH facilities.
Topics range from undiagnosed and rare diseases, cancer genomics, ethical issues in genomics research, and health disparities, among others. Participants will also have the opportunity to tailor their experiences based on offered elective sessions.
