The Center for Integrated Cellular Analysis invites undergraduate students interested in biology, computational biology, and genomics to participate in our 2022 Undergraduate Summer Research
Program. Our center develops DNA sequencing technologies to analyze single cells, a field known as single cell genomics, and applies them to better understand development, cancer, and neurodegenerative disease. Our laboratories are based at multiple institutions across New York City, including the New York Genome Center (NYGC).
