The G-RISE program addresses the need for a well-trained biomedical research workforce and the gains to be achieved by improving its diversity. Our position of research strength in the biomedical sciences, within a large public university in the heart of an underserved community, gives us both the motivation and the ability to cogently address these needs. In this project, a group of 30 faculty members at The City College of New York will build on the success of a prior RISE program to offer coordinated, innovative, and rigorous Ph.D. training in biochemistry, biophysics, bioorganic chemistry, (biomedical and chemical) engineering, and neuroscience.

The broad mission of the program is to focus research and professional skills development on underrepresented Ph.D. trainees at CCNY while also providing beneficial impact for our broader population of trainees and mentors in STEM disciplines.
