Summer Scholars Program in Genome Sciences & Medicine
GCB and the Duke Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine (CAGPM) are partnering with North Carolina Central University (NCCU) to launch 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.
precision health and medicine bass connections team
GCB has partnered with the Duke Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine and Bass Connections to form the Precision Health and Medicine Bass Connections Team. The course will last two semesters and will immerse students in a team-based experiential learning environment to research and design a clinical test to meet the real-world needs of patients in the Duke Health System.
blue devil resistome bass connections team
GCB has partnered with the Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, and the Department of Molecular Genetics & Microbiology to form the Blue Devil Resistome Bass Connections project team. The course will run from summer 2017 through spring 2018 and students will collaborate to map and analyze microbiological samples from Duke campus.
