Lets make some science together!
Call for applications!
Deadline: Jan 20, 2014
Some of the most well-characterized humans on earth attend the annual GET Conference. Many of these omic astronauts have already obtained personal genome sequencing, had their microbiomes characterized at various bodily habitats, and know something about the average length of their telomeres. The prospect of gaining access to these pioneers (and their data!) attracts an increasing number of research groups to join us for this event and organize phenotyping booths, specimen collection stations, sensor distribution and other activities.
Do you want funding to support your research study and to engage with the most well-characterized humans on Earth? We are looking for researchers who study people and their traits and want to work with a cohort of over 3,000 well-characterized individuals who are enthusiastic about and committed to contributing to the advancement of science. Learn more about the Fellows Program.
The tentative date is April 30th, 2014 (we're venue hunting now). The GET Conference brings together scientists and participants to collaborate on the advancement of our ability to measure and understand people and their traits. The GET Conference is produced by PersonalGenomes.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which aims to increase biological literacy and improve human health through its support of the Personal Genome Project and other groundbreaking initiatives.
