The STEP-UP program is designed to provide a short-term summer research experience for high school junior and senior students from racial/ethnic groups and disadvantaged backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral research. The purpose is to expose student participants to research in the NIDDK mission areas, including diabetes, endocrinology, metabolism, nutrition, and obesity, as well as digestive, liver, urologic, kidney, and hematologic diseases; although all areas of research are welcome.
