working in the lab

Forty-six scholars have completed our IRACDA-funded program since it was founded in 2006. Our program, originally entitled TEACRS, was refunded in 2019 with the new name Tufts-IRACDA. For TEACRS, 89% of our alumni obtained academic faculty positions. Of those in academia, 85% are tenure-track or tenured faculty. Ten alumni are at doctorate-granting institutions, and 31 at masters or baccalaureate-granting institutions.

Each of our prior scholars conducted vigorous research related to biomedical issues during their time in the program. They also made strong teaching and mentoring contributions to our partner schools and to teaching and mentoring programs at Tufts University.
