Subject: UNC IMSD Visitation Weekend
The Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP) at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) will host its inaugural BBSP Preview
Weekend on September 27-29, 2015. This event is a great opportunity for you
and other students from underrepresented groups to learn about the BBSP
(http://bbsp.unc.edu/) and its 15 affiliated biomedical PhD programs.
Participants will meet with faculty and T32 Directors, current PhD students,
and staff to learn more about the BBSP and other research/training
opportunities available at UNC, including our UNC IMSD program. Participants
will also receive individual guidance for enhancing the competitiveness of
their graduate school applications.
As a national leader in research and training, UNC ranks 7th among private
and public universities for NIH research funding (FY13) and 9th in doctorates
awarded in the life sciences (NSF, 2012). Our graduate programs in the
biomedical and biological sciences embrace diversity of both people and
thought, and our trainees from underrepresented (UR) groups are successful
leaders and researchers throughout the scientific enterprise.
