In this nine-week program, students will be matched with a faculty mentor in the Department of Genetics at the University of Georgia and be integrated into a lab research team. Research in UGA's Genetics Department is vibrant and diverse - students can choose to work with a faculty mentor in areas related to molecular biology, functional genomics, biotechnology, developmental genetics, ecology, and/or evolution.

Students will engage in an authentic research experience, from project design to data analysis and presentation. Our program also provides training in bioethics and mentoring in professional development. The Genetics Department is committed to promoting diversity and inclusiveness to enhance the field of genetics and foster the careers of its developing scientists.

We encourage applications from students who identify with groups historically excluded from STEM fields.
