Genomic Innovator Seminar Series

Event Details

Beginning September 2022, NHGRI will host a new seminar series based on its Genomic Innovator Award Program, which supports innovative work by early-career genomics investigators who are part of consortia or other team-science efforts.

Each seminar will focus on a specific topic of genomic research by pairing an early career researcher funded under NHGRI’s Genomic Innovator Award Program with a more senior researcher whose work relates to the research area, to provide additional context. Since these awards support highly innovative work by early career genomics investigators who are part of consortia or other team-science efforts, the series will highlight critical emerging topics in genomics. Attendees will learn about creative endeavors with great potential to accelerate research and have the chance to ask questions of some of the brightest minds in genomics.

Each seminar will include two speakers (each giving 20-minute talks) followed by a moderated Q&A session. The sessions, which will be held via Zoom for the foreseeable future, will be open to the public and video recorded for later viewing on the GenomeTV channel of YouTube.
