Increasing Diversity in Biomedical Research
The Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (U*STAR) training program offers an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students seeking careers in biomedical research. We aim to increase diversity in biomedical research by identifying students interested in pursuing research as a career at an early stage and by providing training opportunities. Students from a variety of backgrounds are encouraged to apply especially those traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research (for example, racial and ethnic minorities, students from a socioeconomically disadvantaged background, students with disabilities).
