The Stony Brook University Initiative for Maximizing Student Development: Maximizing Excellence in Research for Graduate Education (IMSD-MERGE) Program aims to increase the number of underrepresented and disadvantaged students (URM) completing highly productive biological and biomedical science degrees at Stony Brook University, and prepare them for seamless advancement into successful research careers. IMSD-MERGE is now a T32 Training grant available to graduate students in a biological and biomedical doctoral program at Stony Brook. IMSD-MERGE is one of the many programs coordinated by the Center for Inclusive Education at Stony Brook University and is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
