Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Single-Cell Genomics

Program dates: June 6 – July 29, 2022
Application deadline: February 1, 2022

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).

  • Learn to design and perform single-cell sequencing experiments
  • Receive introductory training in R and python programming languages
  • Discover new imaging and sequencing-based technologies
  • Perform data analysis and interpretation

Research areas:

  • Satija lab, New York Genome Center/New York University, Computational analysis for single-cell genomics
  • Landau labNew York Genome Center/Weill Cornell School of Medicine, Cancer genomics & evolutionary dynamics
  • Phatnani labNew York Genome Center/Columbia University, Genomics of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Shah labMemorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Cancer evolution, single-cell genomics and transcriptomics
  • Tosches labColumbia University, Developmental & evolutionary neurobiology
  • Cao labThe Rockefeller University, Technology development for single-cell genomics
  • Rabadan labColumbia University, Mathematical genomics
  • Olah labColumbia University, Translational & computational neuroimmunology

Program highlights:

  • 8-week hands-on research
  • Work with a mentor to develop a research project
  • Attend lab meetings & journal clubs
  • Career counseling & mentoring
  • Highly competitive stipend

Who are we looking for?

  • Students with strong interest in Biology, Genomics or Computational Biology.
  • Students from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields 
  • Students interested in entering an MS or PhD program in Biology, Genomics or Computational Biology.
