The goal of the IMSD program at Brown is to develop a diverse pool of scientists earning a Ph.D., who have the skills to successfully transition into careers in the biomedical research workforce. The IMSD is an educational grant awarded to Brown from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences within the NIH beginning in 2008.
The IMSD program at Brown provides graduate students with professional development opportunities, academic support, and a community which enhances success in their PhD programs and makes them highly competitive for the postdoctoral positions and scientific careers of their choice. IMSD at Brown partners with 24 graduate programs in STEM fields. Dean Andrew G. Campbell and Dean Beth Harrington are co-PIs on this grant.
