Summer Institutes

Posted: Friday, March 6, 2020

In light of growing concerns around COVID-19, we have postponed opening registration for the Summer Institutes until April 30. The health and safety of Summer Institutes participants is a top priority and we will be working with UW officials and government health agencies to monitor the potential impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on this year’s program. We will do our best to avoid cancelling the institutes, but will do so if deemed appropriate.Thank you for your patience as we work through these challenges. If you have questions, please email


The goal of Summer Institutes is to strengthen the statistical and genetic proficiency and career preparation of scholars from all backgrounds, especially those from groups historically underrepresented in STEM such as racial and ethnic minority groups, low income, first generation college students, veterans, and differently abled and 2SLGBTQ groups. Sign up for the 2020 Summer Institutes email list for SISG, SISMID, SISBID and SISCER
