2017 Trainees

Maximizing Access to Research Careers

Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research 

 

Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) seeks to increase the number of highly-trained underrepresented biomedical and behavioral scientists in leadership positions to significantly impact the health-related research needs of the nation.      

MARC U-STAR awards provide support for undergraduate students who are underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences to improve their preparation for high-caliber graduate training at the Ph.D. level.  The period of appointment to the MARC U-STAR program is a consecutive 24-month period at the final 2 years of undergraduate training, typically called the junior and senior years.

MARC is a University-wide program.  We accept students from any department on campus, provided they are involved in biomedical or behavioral related laboratory research.
