By bringing worldclass science and transformative workforce development to Gloucester’s historic waterfront, GMGI is catalyzing the regional economy. Founded in 2013, a strategy triad guides our work and includes: a state-of-the-art research institute where we conduct marine research powered by genomics; the Gloucester Biotechnology Academy (Academy), a hands-on vocational program which trains young adults to become biotech lab technicians; and our science community, expanding the local economy as we build a vibrant science hub on Cape Ann.The Academy offers innovative science education programs, which prepare high school graduates for careers as entry-level technicians in biotechnology and life science laboratories. The curriculum emphasizes immersive, hands-on application of techniques, instrumentation, and career skills necessary for success in a professional laboratory. The Academy also offers one-week summer STEM courses to middle school and high school students that foster exploration, discovery, and problem-solving skills using cutting-edge molecular biology and genomics. We strive to instill a sense of curiosity about the natural world and a love of science, technology, engineering, and math.Recently, the Academy was awarded a Workforce Skills Capital Grant by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
