IMSD at Brown provides research training support for students in underrepresented groups to significantly increase the participation of these groups within the fields of biomedical and behavioral research. The program builds partnerships with minority-serving institutions to encourage and increase opportunities for minority students in biology and public health graduate training fields and promote graduate student development across the Brown campus.
