GSI 2023 Pilot Grant Competition

The Genome Science Institute is pleased to announce the winners of the 2023 Pilot Grant Competition. We were able to support seven one-year pilot grants up to $10,000; each to enhance genetics and genomics research at Boston University/Boston Medical Center, with the use of kits, reagents, and other services with new genomic technologies.
