Research Mentors

Mentors in the PREP have a history of training diverse students. A PREP Mentor will have:

  • Outstanding research program supported by the NIH
  • Strong record of scientific productivity. Productive labs are energetic and include many other scientists at various levels, providing a dynamic research environment
  • Experience in training. All mentors are trainers in CWRU's biomedical PhD programs and are thus familiar with the demands of graduate study
  • Active participation in the PREP. Only investigators committed to the goals of the PREP serve as faculty trainers. Faculty are expected to provide mentorship in the lab and participate in meetings
  • An attractive and relevant research plan for a PREP Scholar

Examples of Mentors are listed here, and CWRU has many more research opportunities!
