The predominant goal of the BioCoRE undergraduate program is to create a diverse scientific community of scholars which offers highly-mentored research experiences, programs designed to build skills in scientific excellence, structured mentoring experiences between peers, graduate students and faculty and opportunities to gain professional development skills and personalized career advising. Our long-term goal is that the combination of our BioCoRe undergraduate program elements will both prepare and encourage our scholars to pursue a career in biomedical research and matriculate into top-tier graduate programs. First-year undergraduates who are interested in research careers in the biosciences are invited to apply. Scholars will be appointed based on the fit of the applicants to the program goals and slot availability.
