Scholars work on a research project with the mentorship of NIH faculty, participate in seminars and networking events, and take part in a symposium where they meet their peers and learn about biotechnology from leading scientists in industry and academia.
Only 15 people get chosen for the program each year. People from the U.S., Canada, Asia and Europe participate.
