Description:
Brown's Initiative to Maximize Student Development (IMSD) program is a research training initiative that provides support for pre-doctoral students from underrepresented groups in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (R25GM083270), the program provides a multidimensional and personalized training experience that offers cutting edge research opportunities, continuous to degree advising, innovative training modules to complement curriculum, a strong peer network, and professional development.

Selection of IMSD students is made in consultation with graduate program directors and based on student academic preparation, research experience and recommendations. They are identified from incoming PhD cohorts spanning eleven graduate programs within Brown University's Division of Biology and Medicine and School of Public Health.
