The goal of the IMSD@Brown program is to develop a diverse pool of scientists earning a Ph.D., who have the skills to successfully transition into careers in the biomedical and STEM research workforce. IMSD@Brown is an educational grant awarded to Brown from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences within the NIH beginning in 2008.
IMSD@Brown provides graduate students with professional development opportunities, academic support, and a community which enhances success in their Ph.D. programs and makes them highly competitive for the postdoctoral positions and scientific careers of their choice. IMSD@Brown partners with 22 graduate programs within the Division of Biology and Medicine, the School of Public Health, the School of Engineering, and related physical science disciplines.
