The HGSC-G/GREAT (Genetics/Genomics Research And Training) program is a nine weeks research training program at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. The program provides research opportunities in genetics/genomics to increase the number of URMs with Ph.Ds. in this field.

The program offers courses like Bioinformatics BootCamp and GREprep and a Visiting Professors Program, where alumni with doctorates return to interact with current students.

Each student will participate in a genetics/genomics research project, program courses (i.e., biomedical review course), and professional development (create an individual development plan). Each student will give an oral research presentation at the end of the program.

HGSC-G/GREAT student stipend for the summer is $4,500. Housing is paid directly by the program and located in the Texas Medical Center (TMC). All interns are required to live on campus and can interact with students from other TMC summer programs that live in the same housing.

Basic eligibility-Priority group African American, Hispanic American, Native American, and Pacific Islander (under-represented in genetics/genomics careers); Economically disadvantaged, Persons with Disabilities; 3.0 GPA (or above); sophomores, juniors, or seniors; and major in STEM fields: chemistry; biology; computer science; mechanical or electrical engineering to name a few.

Community building and mentoring go hand-in-hand. Mentoring encountered through several avenues: program mentor, research mentor, bench mentor, peer-mentoring by current HGSC-Diversity Initiative program participants, graduate students, PostDocs, and HGSC-G/GREAT alumni.
