The 2020 Summer Genetics Institute will mark the 20th anniversary of the program. Since the inaugural class, over 425 SGI graduates are making a difference in communities across the country—building programs of nursing research in genetics, disseminating the results of genetics-related research in peer-reviewed scientific publications and at scientific conferences, and integrating genetics content in nursing school curricula and practice.
The SGI is a tuition-free, one-month intensive program of classroom and laboratory instruction in genetics that provides a foundation for biobehavioral research and clinical practice. Last year’s class completed 50 lectures and 10 hands-on lab sessions. On completion of the program, participants receive eight hours of graduate-level college credit.
The 2020 SGI will be held from June 1-26, 2020 on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, MD.
Nursing graduate students, faculty, postdocs, and clinicians who are citizens or permanent U.S. residents may apply. Applicants should demonstrate potential for a highly productive research or clinical career. Applications will be accepted from now until March 1, 2020.
