Post-baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)


In lab

PREP is a 1-year program designed to help participants strengthen their candidacy for admission to the nation's strongest biomedical sciences Ph.D. programs. PREP is part of the training efforts of the NIH's Diversity in the Biomedical Workforce initiative and is supported by the NIH Division of Training, Workforce Development, and Diversity.

U-M PREP encourages applications from underrepresented minorities who hold a recent baccalaureate degree in a field related to biomedical sciences that are interested in pursuing a research doctorate.

“All the grad students seemed normal, like they enjoyed being in grad school.”

That was Ishita’s first impression when she interviewed at U-M with PIBS (the Program in Biomedical Sciences). She explains, “The Michigan environment was so welcoming. It stood out a lot compared to my other interviews. In the Cellular and Molecular Biology Program, we study very diverse science topics, so you get feedback from a lot of different perspectives on your research.”
