Student Training Programs
ASCEND is "A Student-Centered, Entrepreneurship Development (ASCEND) Training Model to Increase Diversity in the Biomedical Research Workforce." The primary goal of the ASCEND model is to empower students to exchange ideas, and find their own research topic and develop it, so that they are creative and take ownership of their research.
The NIGMS-RISE program is geared to increase the number of minority scientists in biomedical and behavioral science research. It enables students at Morgan State University to participate in biomedical and behavioral research and go on to obtain the Ph.D. degree.
