The TGen Summer Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to conduct scientific research under the mentorship of an experienced investigator. In 2005, 60 interns worked side-by-side with TGen researchers and their teams to unlock the mysteries of genetic diseases such as melanoma, prostate cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. The internships start off with an orientation that includes human subjects and biosafety training and concludes with an oral and poster presentation of the work they accomplished over the summer.
