"As an undergraduate researcher, I am learning things that I am so excited about. I finally get to use my education and put it to use. It isn’t just pictures and text in books anymore."
-Brittney McKenzie, GenOM ALVA 2008
The GenOM Project is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and in part by the Genentech Foundation. The program provides educational and research opportunities as well as academic support for underrepresented minority students interested in genomics and life sciences research at the University of Washington.
