NHGRI Launches Genomics Careers Resource for Students – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. In an effort to help students understand the opportunities in the fields of genetics and genomics, the National Human Genome Research Institute has created the Genomic Careers Resource website. Dr. Carla Easter, NHGRI science education specialist, explains the site.
Easter: The site was designed mainly because there really was nothing really cool or interactive out there. And we wanted to make something that students would look at that wasn’t considered bland or pretty much what was out there already. So we really put a lot of effort into making it video driven and interactive.
Narrator: To view the site, visit www.genome.gov/GenomicCareers. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
