Our Plan 

The Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program is deeply committed to diversity and inclusion. Since its inception, the BSGP has made recruiting United States citizens and permanent residents, especially those underrepresented in the biomedical research workforce, a high priority. The BSGP aims to increase the number of PhD trainees from groups historically underrepresented (UR) in the biomedical sciences, and to foster these trainees transition to successful scientific careers.

One of the cornerstones of our diversity initiative and inclusion effort is the Discovery Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP). PREP is an National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded program that provides an intense paid research experience in outstanding research facilities with leading investigators at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
