National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) began celebrating DNA Day annually on April 25th after the 108th Congress passed concurrent resolutions designating it as DNA Day. The goal of National DNA Day is to offer students, teachers and the public an opportunity to learn about and celebrate the latest advances in genomic research and explore how those advances impact their lives. 

 

The Raiders are mixing a dash of STEM, a tablespoon of college readiness and whoppin' dollop of career exploration to bring you this virtual Early Dedication to Medical Education program. Sessions will be held virtually on Zoom. Your Zoom session link will be sent out to you via e-mail before the day of the program.

We can't wait to celebrate National DNA Day with you!
