Remote Internship Program

Students Publish Research

Gaining meaningful life science research experience is a significant challenge for students in smaller universities or colleges throughout the U.S. Robust research experience helps students transition into the workforce after their bachelor’s degree and is often a requirement for graduate or professional training programs.

The Center for Genomic Interpretation provides opportunities for students to work remotely on mentored research projects in genetics and to potentially submit their work to CGI’s peer-reviewed scientific journal.


“I loved remotely interning at CGI. I gained so much exposure to the fields of genetic counseling and variant science and learned so much about their complexity and nuances. The projects I worked on were interesting and engaging and I really felt like I was able to contribute to meaningful work.”
-Sara S.

“If you’re interested in making meaningful connections, being a part of a team, doing exciting research, working with a tight knit group of highly intelligent and talented people, getting your name on publications, and making the world a better place, being an intern at CGI is for you. I left my internship there feeling like my knowledge of genetics and variant classification in particular had increased 100-fold”
-Sydney P.
