Training the Next Generation of Biomedical Research Professionals
The Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) program is designed to support motivated students interested in developing careers as professional research scientists in biomedical and behavioral science fields. Its goal is to increase the interest, skills, and competitiveness of students pursuing biomedical or behavioral research careers. The program supports the research and career development of undergraduate students starting in their sophomore year and Master's degree candidates who will pursue Ph.D. training following graduation.
The RISE Program is funded through a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
