We connect students and lay people looking for expert input or interviews with knowledgeable scientists.
Have you read a lot about CRISPR but still have questions? Want to hear about the latest research and discuss fascinating ethical questions directly with an expert? Talk to a scientist! Students, teachers, parents, and curious members of the public are invited to our "Ask a Scientist" program. Submit a request below and an IGI representative will follow up within a week.
We specialize in CRISPR genome editing, but can also provide perspective on what it's like to be a scientist doing laboratory research. This program is primarily intended to benefit elementary, middle, high school, and college students, but we also encourage questions from the public.
Limitations: Please note that we do not provide scientific or medical advice, do not consult on professional research projects, and reserve the right to reject any request. We cannot take individual requests from entire classes of students, so if you're a teacher looking to use our program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work with you to set up a group call.
Our scientists have answered questions from across the world! Fill out the request form and join the global conversation.
Program participants use what they learn about genome editing for a wide range of creative projects. Scroll through some examples below! If you've participated previously and would like us to feature your work, please email email@example.com.
Please only fill out the form once. If you haven't received an email from one of our volunteers, please check your spam folder. If you have issues with any part of the process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to fill out the form below, please download this file and send the completed document to the same address.
