[Source: UA News] – A multi-million dollar federal grant – one of the largest at the University of Arizona with layers of mentoring and training to ensure the representation of minorities interested in biomedicine, biotechnology and life-sciences careers – has recently been renewed. 

With $7 million from the National Institutes of Health, the UA will continue its partnership with Pima Community College to train postdoctoral scientists for tenure-track careers.

The grant provides postdoctoral fellows with a UA faculty mentored research experience, and it also provides a mentored teaching experience with Pima faculty. The fellows shadow Pima faculty members and learn teaching skills before taking over classes at various Pima campuses.
