Double Helix Dash
The iconic Double Helix Dash 5K run and 1-mile fun run attracted more than 800 participants in 2018. One of the most unique races in North America, the race begins and ends on the HudsonAlpha campus and winds through the distinctive bends of the world’s largest double helix in McMillian Park. Proceeds from the Double Helix Dash support HudsonAlpha’s work with rare and undiagnosed genetic disorders, which affect some 25 million people across the country.
Check back soon for information about the 2019 Double Helix Dash at http://hudsonalpha.org/double-helix-dash.
Held each year in September, HudsonAlpha’s free public education seminar Biotech 101 is a great primer on how biotechnology affects everyday life. The four-week evening series teaches DNA basics and the relevance of genetics and genomics in medicine, agriculture and the environment.
Registration opens up this summer. Check out https://hudsonalpha.org/biotech-101/ for more information.
Ready for more biotech learning? The popular Biotech 201 series builds on the learning of Biotech 101. Held in February each year, Biotech 201 explores a number of different topics in genetics and genomics research. To learn more, visit https://hudsonalpha.org/biotech-201/.
