This website lists opportunities from the larger Co-op/Internship and Summer Research Opportunities in the Life Sciences that may provide experiences in genetics, human genetics, gene expression, developmental biology and clinical genetics. There are likely many other opportunities not listed below (but included in the larger list).

In addition to the valuable experience and good pay that a Co-op or Internship will give you, very many of the Opportunities listed on this website also provide Travel Reimbursement, Housing and Meals. So, don't let concerns about living expenses or the location of an organization posted on this website prevent you from checking out an exciting and challenging Co-op or Internship position!! If travel support, housing and meals are provided, this information will almost always be included in the details about the Co-op or Internship that can be found by clicking on the co-op website next to the organization's name and location.
