By providing strong research training, coupled with career development activities that include mentored teaching, trainees are well-positioned for success in their first academic positions. Because teaching is performed at minority-serving institutions, the programs will also increase links between research institutions and minority serving undergraduate schools and hopefully inspire young students from all backgrounds to pursue careers in biomedical research.
