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.

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

Agata Smogorzewska, MD, PhD (class of 2003) and current faculty member at The Rockefeller University is a new member of the Journal of Biological Chemistry Editorial Board.
For the first time in the program’s history, there are now two Tri-Institutional MD-PhD students who have been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list.  Alexendar Pérez, who created a software package for DNA researchers, joins this year’s list. Pérez and 2017 list honoree Kevin O’Rourke, who studies the genetic causes of colon cancer, discussed their experiences with the program and how it contributed to their success.
