The Museum has always prepared emerging scientists to investigate life, in all its fascinating forms. The Global Genome Initiative will continue this tradition. We will attract the brightest minds and increase our ability to train pre- and postdoctoral students.
Equally important, we are introducing preteens and teens to genomics through our exhibitions, school programs, and award-winning internship program, Youth engagement through Science (YES!). These are transformative experiences that open their minds to the power and possibilities of science careers.
