The GenOM Project offers several opportunities for research. High school seniors and incoming freshmen can participate in our ALVA Summer Research Program, a 9 week summer internship that provides students with intensive ethics and lab training, math and chemistry courses, and first-hand, quality experiences in laboratories of established researchers. For more information on this program, and to see past participants' profiles visit our website: http://depts.washington.edu/genomics/hsprog/alva.shtml.
Undergraduate students at the University of Washington can participate in the undergraduate research program that takes place during the academic year. In addition, the GenOM Project also has a Summer Undergraduate Research Program open to students from any undergraduate institution. These programs provide students with opportunities to probe deeper into the cutting-edge science of genomics and gain hands-on experience in established laboratories. For more information on these two programs and to see the profiles of past participants, visit our website: http://depts.washington.edu/genomics/undprog/undresearch.shtml.The GenOM Project also has a variety of programs geared towards graduate students, including a fellowship program. For more information please visit our website: http://depts.washington.edu/genomics/gradprog/index.shtml
Applications for all of the GenOM programs include application forms, a short personal statement, transcripts and two letters of recommendation. Applications can be found on our website. The application deadlines vary depending on the program.
We also strive to create a network of researchers, graduate students and professors in research at UW using the resources of the Centers for Excellence in Genomic Science, the Genome Training Grant, the Genetics Training Grant, various research grants, and academic departments.
