The MBM Foundation is designed for medical students who desire research experiences in the basic science that underlies modern medicine. The program capitalizes on the medical school’s strengths in basic biomedical research, and MBM Scholars will participate in coursework and laboratory research side-by-side with PhD and MSTP students. Through these activities, the MBM Foundation provides a conceptual foundation for medical students who may later pursue a PhD or research postdoctoral fellowship. The program also serves future physicians by training them in the generation and interpretation of scientific research data, equipping them to follow and incorporate basic science advances related to their clinical practice.
