Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

UNC-IMSD is a NIH-funded educational research program with the goal of increasing the number of scientists from groups historically underrepresented (UR) in the biomedical sciences that attain PhDs in biomedical disciplines and continue on to successful scientific careers. We aim to provide our UR students with the individualized training, academic support, professional development, community, and mentorship they need to ensure timely graduation and become self-confident, highly competitive scientists.
