Goals of the RISE Program
- To increase the number of underserved student groups graduating in biomedically related fields
- To increase an environment in which graduating RISE students will leave the program fully steeped in the culture and ethical practice of biomedical research professionals
- To increase the number of underserved student groups who enter doctoral programs in biomedical-related fields
- To create an environment through which both current and past RISE Starters and Fellows, Faculty Research Advisors, RISE Project Leadership, and participating scientific researchers in the greater Long Beach area will experience a sense of belonging to a professional biomedical stakeholder group.
