GET Labs Fellows Program

The focus of this year’s GET Conference is less talk and more science. In order for that plan to be successful, we need a strong showing of talented researchers ready, willing, and able to take their show on the road!

We are looking for researchers who study people and their traits. The Harvard PGP now has a cohort of more than 3000 eager, enrolled participants. These well-characterized individuals are enthusiastic about science and willing to contribute to the advancement of science in astounding ways. Many of them already have open-access whole genome data, health records, microbiome data, and cell lines.

Are you interested in bringing your research project to the GET Conference? Do you want unprecedented access to these prospective participants who are exceptionally characterized and willing to share a wealth of their research data and specimens with you?


Deadline: 11:59pm PST on January 20, 2014
