Scientific discovery requires innovation, curiosity and a breadth of perspectives. The Graduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (G-RISE) program at UNT aims to produce a pool of highly trained scientists from all backgrounds, because our collective diversity generates a diversity of ideas, which in turn lead to excellence in scientific research.
The G-RISE program at UNT is funded by the National Institutes of Health, through grant T32GM136501. The mission of this project, per the NIH website, is: "The goal of the Graduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (G-RISE) program is to develop a diverse pool of scientists earning a Ph.D., who have the skills to successfully transition into careers in the biomedical research workforce." The UNT G-RISE intends to have a positive training impact for our entire graduate STEM community through mentor training and institutional change.
