Program Goals

The MARC U*STAR program aims to produce competitive candidates for Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. graduate programs in the biomedical research field.

The MARC U*STAR program provides students, traditionally underrepresented, opportunities to gain knowledge about the field by offering workshops, seminars, and symposiums.

Students participating in the MARC U*STAR program receive the academic and research training they need to succeed in a doctoral program, including GRE preparation.

Students in the MARC U*STAR program are involved in research projects with faculty members in the biomedical research field on a year-round basis.
