The STAR application requires that you do a little research of your own. If you have not made arrangements with an NYMC faculty member for the upcoming summer session, you must find three NYMC faculty members whose research interests you. We suggest you begin by reviewing the research taking place in each academic department at the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences.
Under the Doctor of Philosophy heading you will find the six basic science departments (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Physiology). Within each department you will find an explanation of the current research being explored. On the department faculty page, you will be able to review the research being performed by each faculty member as well as their professional interests.
Remember to note the names of the researchers you are interested in as you will need to enter them within your application (Q23).
