GradGov and the Graduate School are pleased to support the research and professional development of graduate students through the GradGov-GSAS Research Grant (GGRG), formerly known as GradGov Research Project Awards. These grants have been used toward supplies, travel and other research expenses such as training, archival research or data collection, or travel to a laboratory, associated with furthering or completing a dissertation, thesis or other research project.
Last fall, Arthur McDeed, a Ph.D. student in Biostatistics, was able to attend the “Advanced Sequencing Technologies & Applications” intensive workshop hosted by Cold Spring Harbor Labs. “The learnings from this course have been directly applied to my current Ph.D. dissertation research and ongoing research collaborations at Georgetown,” McDeed said.
This opportunity provided him with valuable networking opportunities with other biomedical researchers pursuing similar topics. “Attending the Cold Spring Harbor Labs workshop offered a unique opportunity to further enrich my understanding of bioinformatics and sequencing methodologies that are essential to my continued development as an effective biostatistician and biomedical researcher.”
