Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC)
The MARC Program is a unique research, mentoring, financial and academic opportunity for undergraduates belonging to a group considered underrepresented in biomedical research and who have the interest and potential to pursue a PhD or combined PhD (e.g. MD/PhD) degree. The program is a two-year program intended for the last two years of a student’s enrollment at the University of Arizona. The expectation is that students who participate in the MARC program will be well-prepared to take the next step in pursuing their graduate education and a future research career in the biomedical sciences.
