Support our vision for the future!
pgEd is moving quickly to expand our programs so everyone is aware of the relevance of genetic information to their daily lives. Awareness is the first step, so people can speak up, ask questions of their healthcare provider, make informed decisions for themselves and their families, and come together to act in the best interest of their communities and society as a whole.
Major support for pgEd’s current projects is from Harvard Medical School and the Department of Genetics and grants from the National Institutes of Health*.
Current and recent grant-funded projects are:
- Building Awareness, Respect, and Confidence through Genetics, National Institutes of Health, Science Education Partnership Award (R25 GM129172, 2016-2021)*
- Teaching the Genome Generation: Professional Development for Genomics Instruction in Rural and Urban High Schools, The Jackson Laboratory/National Institutes of Health, Science Education Partnership Award (R25 GM129169, 2016-2021)*
- ELSI.hub: National Center for ELSI Resources and Analysis, Stanford University/National Institutes of Health, Center for ELSI Resources and Analysis (U24 HG010733, 2019-2024)
- Teaching the Genome Generation: Cultivating High School Genomics through Teacher Education, The Jackson Laboratory/National Institutes of Health, Science Education Partnership Award (R25 GM142036, 2021-2026)*
pgEd also recognizes Drs. Jennifer Doudna and Jamie Cate, DuPont Pioneer/Corteva, Frontline Genomics, and, anonymous donors for their gifts to pgEd within the last three years.
