Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)

The Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) funded by the NIGMS, provides individualized mentoring, coursework, the development of strong laboratory research skills, and a supportive learning environment for post-baccalaureate students interested in pursuing PhD or MD/PhD training and research careers in biomedicine.

PREP builds upon your scholarly skills and personal research interests through laboratory investigation, seminars and works-in-progress sessions. As a PREP scholar, you spend one or two years in PREP, with roughly 75 percent of that time dedicated to the laboratory.
