Western New York Genetics in Research and Health Care Partnership

The partnership serves as a pipeline for teacher and student recruitment, training and mentorship in bioscience, with a particular focus on genetics.

It is designed to support career paths for students in both scientific research and the health professions, emphasizing assistance to those from underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, as well as to familiarize teachers with basic bioinformatics concepts that they can introduce into their classrooms.
