One of the goals of Summer Institutes is to strengthen the statistical and genetic proficiency and career preparation of scholars from all backgrounds, especially those from groups historically underrepresented in STEM such as racial and ethnic minority groups, low income, first-generation college students, veterans, and differently-abled and 2SLGBTQ groups.
Who Should Attend
Participants represent colleges and universities, research labs, health organizations, private industry, non-profit organizations and government agencies. Attendees range from graduate students/postdocs to senior level scientists, and represent genetics, biomedical research, biostatistics, epidemiology, clinical trials, data science, and many other fields.
