The program nurtures 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 experience that also consists of course-work, workshops and seminars designed to introduce students to biomedical/behavioral science careers and leading scientists.

The main objective of RISE is to strengthen the student's academic and research credentials to facilitate their entry into competitive biomedical/behavioral science graduate (PhD) programs. The program offers students unique opportunities such as summer research internships, Graduate Record Examination  (GRE) preparation, publication of their research findings in scientific journals, experience in giving professional presentations at national scientific meetings and other professional development activities.
