NINR Marks 20th Anniversary of Summer Genetics Institute

Event banner

On Monday, June 22, from noon to 3:30 p.m., NINR’s Division of Intramural Research will hold a virtual scientific symposium to mark a milestone anniversary—celebrating 20 years of its Summer Genetics Institute (SGI). NINR invites the NIH community and fellow scientists to join them in examining how omics methodologies are improving symptom measurement and characterization. This event is free of charge, but registration is required.

The symposium will include opening remarks from NIH director Dr. Francis Collins and lectures from leading nurse scientists who will discuss their research in omics and perspective on the future of omics in translational programs of research and clinical care: Dr. Christine Miaskowski, University of California San Francisco; Dr. Yvette Conley, University of Pittsburgh; and Dr. Angela Starkweather, University of Connecticut.

The SGI provides nurse scientists with a foundation in molecular genetics appropriate for use in research and clinical practice. Nearly 450 SGI graduates are making a difference in communities across the country—building programs of nursing research in genetics, disseminating the results of genetics-related research in peer-reviewed scientific publications and at scientific conferences and integrating genetics content in nursing school curricula and nursing practice.
