Diversity Ambassador

In an effort to increase and celebrate diversity, Cancer Biology is heading an initiative known as the "Ambassadors of Diversity". The purpose of the project is to give prospective students an idea of who they can talk to about University Michigan and the Cancer Biology Graduate Training Program from the perspective of someone belonging to these groups. Staff and faculty members are also included in this initiative and can provide guidance and mentorship as well.
