Student in lab

  • Investigating biomedical research questions relevant to local communities while engaging in “giving back” research.
  • Engaging with successful role models and their contributions to local communities to help increase motivation for a career in biomedical research.


By gaining skills and effective mentorship, students will become meaningful contributors to the biomedical research workforce.
