HHMI-University of Utah Med into Grad Program (U2M2G)
PhD-scientists are facing new and greater challenges that require an understanding of the fundamentals of human biology and medicine and the tools to participate in the multidisciplinary teams that drive successful translational initiatives. The HHMI-University of Utah Med into Grad program (U2M2G) provides the didactic, mentoring and financial support to train basic scientists that can meet these challenges and function at the interface of clinical medicine and science.U2M2G courses teach the fundamentals of human biology, pathophysiology and molecular medicine to all interested basic science PhD students. The U2M2G Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) program provides stipend and tuition support to a selected group of PhD students on a competitive basis.
