The MARC U*STAR Program is a two-year, NIH-funded, undergraduate honors program that seeks to increase the number of scientists from diverse backgrounds that significantly impact health-related research. The program specifically seeks to strengthen the skills and research training of students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. This program is appropriate for students interested in pursuing a PhD or dual PhD degree upon completion of their baccalaureate degree.

We are organizing a six week-long, mentored summer research program focused on "Big Data" and related computational and statistical problems. This is our third year offering this summer program.
