Subject: Discovery PREP at Ohio State

Ohio State offers a unique program designed to encourage individuals seeking
a PhD in the biomedical sciences, including individuals from populations that
are underrepresented in the biomedical workforce. Discovery PREP accomplishes
this mission by providing opportunities for recent baccalaureate degree
graduates to obtain the intensive research experience needed to gain
admission to, and succeed in, a biomedical PhD program. Specifically,
Discovery PREP is a one year program funded by NIH that provides:

•	A paid research experience with a leader in Cancer Biology, Neuroscience,
Microbiology, Bioinformatics, Immunology, or Physiology
•	Graduate Record Exam (GRE) preparation course
•	Individual mentoring
•	Assistance with application preparation
•	Orientation and social activities
•	Seminars and journal clubs
•	Career development workshops
•	Opportunities to travel and network with scientists throughout the nation

The biomedical research environment at Ohio State is an excellent location to
attain the experiences and skills necessary for graduate school. Research
within the Medical Center is openly discussed and highly collaborative with
over 260 principal investigators performing research in the Biomedical
Sciences. The facilities at Ohio State are state of the art and many core
services are available to expand the expertise available to individual
researchers. Collaborations between laboratories are highly encouraged and
many research programs cross disciplines to involve multiple investigators
across campus. This provides an exceptional environment for training for
scientists and affords ample opportunities for networking.

Applications to Discovery PREP are due April 1, 2017. We will interview
selected applicants and offer admission to the program on a rolling basis
until all of the positions are filled.
