LSU MARC Program
The LSU Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program provides high-impact research experiences to a diverse pool of undergraduates and prepares them for entry into graduate programs in the biomedical sciences. The LSU MARC Program offers research training, financial support, mentoring, networking opportunities and academic preparation for motivated students. Our vision is to produce highly skilled, competitive, and productive young scientists who will fill a national need, and enhance LSU faculty mentoring, inclusion, collaborative research, community engagement and outreach activities.
LSU MARC is supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under award number T34GM136452.
