Undergraduate Education

Students studying outside

GCB brings together scientists, engineers, physicians and sociologists passionate about interdisciplinary research to explore big questions in genomics and computational biology. Using state-of-the-art technology and groundbreaking techniques, our faculty are asking big questions.

We are committed to providing undergraduate students opportunities to take part in this exciting research through independent study opportunities, the Genome Sciences & Medicine Summer Scholars Program and the Precision Health and Medicine Bass Connections team.

Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences & Medicine

GCB and the Duke Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine (CAGPM) have partnered with North Carolina Central University (NCCU) for the the Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences and Medicine, supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute at NIH. This annual 10-week program is designed for full-time first- and second-year underrepresented minority (URM) students at any college or university.
