MU gets $1.1M science grant

The University of Missouri has received a $1.1 million grant to continue a program aimed at increasing diversity in biomedical sciences.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the grant from the National Institutes of Health is for the university’s Post-baccalaureate Research Education Program, or PREP. The PREP program was established in 2003 to increase diversity in 30 biomedical sciences departments and programs by recruiting minority students.
