This certificate program is designed for students belonging
to a socioeconomic or underrepresented racial or ethnic group who have
received or will soon receive a bachelor's degree and desire to pursue a
PhD in the biomedical sciences but want additional research training
and skills development. It is designed to "immerse" students in
an active research lab where the excitement of biomedical research is
obvious and nurtured with the hopes of encouraging them to pursue
doctoral training in the biomedical sciences. Scholars must have completed their BS degrees less than 3 years before entering the program.
