The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) recently announced the award of a $380,000 grant from the Helios Education Foundation to create the Helios Scholars Program at TGen. The program provides stipend funding for 50 qualified high school, undergraduate, and graduate students who compete for the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience as summer interns under the guidance of a TGen mentor. The eight-week program supports students from all backgrounds in their efforts to develop foundational skills as they pursue careers in science or medical-related fields.
