Opportunities for Genomics Research at Washington University

The Genome Institute at Washington University in St. Louis is seeking highly talented students for our programs, Opportunities in Genomics Research (OGR).  The OGR programs are directed to increasing the number of underrepresented students who pursue Ph.D.’s in genomics and related fields. OGR provides students with a mentored research experience at Washington University, as well as other engaging activities to prepare students for competitive Ph.D. programs. We have two OGR programs, Undergraduate Scholars, an eight-week summer program and Extensive Study, a one-year post-baccalaureate program. Both programs include conducting research with premier investigators in genomics and genetics as well as disciplines such as: cancer biology, molecular biology, immunology, and others. We provide a competitive stipend/salary, housing (summer program only), and travel to St. Louis. To learn more and view past participants, visit our website at
