MARC U*STAR

MARC U*STAR Program

The Minority Access to Research Careers Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (MARC U*STAR) Program is designed to identify, inspire, motivate and train the next generation of biomedical scientists who hold leadership positions in cutting-edge scientific research in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.  

MARC is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is designed to increase the participation of underrepresented minority (URM) students involved in biomedical/behavioral research. The program nurture undergraduate URM’s in a way that induces their interest in and readiness for research careers in the biomedical/behavioral sciences.  Students from various majors including Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Exercise Science participate in the programs. Scholars receive extensive hands-on laboratory research experiences that also consist of coursework, workshops and seminars designed to introduce students to biomedical/behavioral science careers and leading scientists. The main objective of MARC is to strengthen the student’s academic and research credentials to facilitate their entry into competitive biomedical/behavioral science graduate (PhD/MD PhD) programs.
