Research Mentoring Institute

The Center for Biomolecular Science & Engineering (CBSE) at UC Santa Cruz offers the Research Mentoring Institute (RMI) for outstanding undergraduate and graduate students interested in pursuing research projects in areas relevant to the human genome, including the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of genome research. This grant-funded program, sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute, offers two honor award programs that support research projects related to genomic sciences and ELSI: RMI undergraduate diversity scholarships and RMI graduate diversity fellowships. The institute offers a mentoring community and individual support for students to continue their studies and pursue a related career.
