Gateways to the Laboratory Summer Program

The mission of the Gateways to the Laboratory Program is to increase the number of students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine and science who are prepared to become competitive applicants, successful MD-PhD students, and future leaders in biomedical research and academic medicine.

Gateways Students 2024

Watch the video below to hear the some students from the 2019 Gateways class sing the praises of their experiences at the Tri-I. 

I arrived at the Tri-Institutional Campus in September 1972 to pursue post-doctoral training in biophysics with Alexander Mauro at The Rockefeller University. I was recruited to Cornell University Medical College, now Weill Cornell Medicine, in 1973, where I embarked on my independent research career in membrane biophysics.
The Olaf S. Andersen Physician-Scientist Award was created by the Incoming Class of 2017 to honor the legacy of Dr. Olaf Andersen, who was Director from 1996 until 2021. Each year, MD-PhD students in their 3rd year of medical school are nominated by their peers and mentors for the award, with the recipient chosen by the Executive Committee. The award, in addition to the honor and prestige it brings, comes with a $3,000 prize.
