Our mentor labs are comprised of leading Big Data genomics scientists who are committed to providing students with hands-on research training in cutting edge technologies.

Students identify research interests and pair with mentors to develop relevant skills and accomplish individualized program benchmarks. Beyond the lab, mentors guide students through a rich curriculum to deepen their scientific understanding and enhance their lab research. Mentors work closely with students to develop original research projects, while providing guidance on career pathways and planning for graduate school or further research training.
