Interested in Pursuing a Career in Biomedical Research?
The MARC and pre-MARC programs provide support for undergraduate students from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences, and who are interested in pursuing careers in biomedical research. Major components of the program include mentored student research experiences, enhancement programs in introductory science and math courses, enrichment activities such as group seminars, faculty and peer mentoring, and attendance at scientific meetings.
In addition to providing students with a mentored research experience and supplemental coursework, MARC also provides personalized academic counseling, assistance selecting and applying to graduate programs, local presentation opportunities, travel support to attend national meetings, and other opportunities to enhance research and academic skills.
