Welcome to the GRACE website! GRACE stands for Genetics Research Awareness via Community Engagement. We are a team of researchers passionate about all things genetics related, and our mission is to increase knowledge and understanding of this fascinating field, for all. We’re also committed to increasing diversity in genetics research, so that it fairly represents, and benefits, all cross sections of society.

We encourage you to watch the above video and explore our website where you will find out more about who we are and the community work that we do. You’ll also find resources explaining the basics of genetics and how genetic testing is used today.
