Programs and Initiatives

Our diversity initiatives and programs are grounded in the University's mission of education and the advancement of knowledge.

The Dean’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship program prepares scientists from groups historically underrepresented in the basic, biomedical, and behavioral sciences for careers in academia and other sectors. This two-year fellowship will provide support for two promising PhD graduates to join our vibrant postdoc community and pursue research training with a faculty mentor in the Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown.
IMSD at Brown provides research training support and mentorship for students in underrepresented groups to significantly increase the participation of these groups within the fields of biomedical and behavioral research.
This is a summer enrichment program for six weeks meant to expose high school students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds or historically underrepresented minorities to career possibilities in basic and translational scientific research within the medical field of pathology.
The Division of Biology and Medicine is proud to support pre and postdoctoral trainees in a wide range of studies through federally funded training grants. These training programs are committed to building diversity and providing the resources necessary to help advance trainees in their field of science.
