Seattle Pacific University

Seattle Pacific University (SPU) is located in the heart of Seattle and is known for world-class education. STAR Fellows have the opportunity to work with Dr. Derek Wood and Dr. Katey Houmiel on the Guiding Education through Novel Investigation (GENI )Project

What is GENI?

GENI-Science incorporates original genomics, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology research into high school, community college, and undergraduate university classrooms.

Summer Research Opportunities

A number of projects are available with the GENI project, with more detailed descriptions available here. SPU is a new partner in 2019 but has a rich history in teacher preparation. Seattle is a vibrant city with excellent public transportation. Fellows may wish to find temporary accommodations in the city center or take advantage of summer housing at the University of Washington.
