Gene Researcher for a Week is a unique seven-day program for enthusiastic students in Grades 11, 12 and CEGEP equivalents. It takes place in a real, dynamic, hands-on lab, giving students the chance to work with the top geneticists in Canada!

In order to complete the application process, each student must have his/her science/biology teacher submit a reference letter. As the referring teacher, you will be contacted via email and directed to the website to submit a reference letter. You may be asked to recommend more than one student, a separate recommendation for each student is needed. The student's application will be deemed complete, and their application considered, once the teacher reference letter is submitted.

We thank you for your time and participation in this exciting program!
