Program Description

The PREP (Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program)

is designed to provide mentoring, research skills, coursework and a positive learning environment to recent post-baccalaureate students, who intend to pursue a PhD degree in biomedical science.  This program is a unique opportunity in particular for students belonging to groups underrepresented in the biomedical or behavioral sciences to strengthen their applications to PhD Programs nation-wide by conducting research as laboratory technicians for one year at the University of Chicago and by participating in diverse academic activities that will prepare them to be successful graduate students. 

Participants in the PREP must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
