Connecting Science with the Public

GEM organizes and supports events and activities to promote genomic and microbiomic literacy at all levelsfrom K-12 schools, to colleges, the general public, and experts in related fields. 

GEM seeks to broaden the reach of the scientific community, to help translate complicated scientific findings into more easily understandable concepts, and to provide an avenue for the public to learn more about new topics such as ethical concepts in genetics, the importance of the microbiome, and how precision medicine is poised to change the way we make health decisions.
