The TRAIN program at Brown University is a cross-institutional ‘team research’ and inter-institutional networking program between Brown and four institutions of higher education in New York that primarily serve underrepresented undergraduate students. Faculty-led research teams from these institutions participate in student-linked collaborative research projects with faculty-led research teams at Brown.
This training and research practice model enables students to become more engaged in research activities that raise their likelihood of pursuing graduate careers and provides opportunities for faculty at these institutions to sustain and expand their research practices. It also allows Brown University faculty to build their research programs and develop collaborations while mentoring prospective graduate candidates.
The program’s broad and long- term goals are to support research training in the biomedical and behavioral sciences and to attract and retain under-represented trainees in the sciences. The T.R.A.I.N. program is supported by Grant # T36GM101995 from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health.
