The UCLA-Caltech MSTP is proud to be part of the 2022 Heroes of Hope Race for Brain Tumor Research! Students, faculty, family, and friends of our program are all welcome to join this team. The funds we raise will specifically go to UCLA.
Excerpt from the UCLA-Caltech MSTP Directors' Welcome:
We recruit and support students who display a passion for scientific knowledge and a life-long commitment to research and leadership. We are additionally committed to the recruitment and training of students from disadvantaged backgrounds and ethnic groups that are under-represented in the sciences, and students with disabilities.
Our students complete their medical training at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and their PhD in one of many graduate training programs at the university. Each year, two students pursue their graduate training at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), where they can draw from the strengths of its dynamic faculty and research community. As program directors, we are committed to guiding our students throughout all phases of their MD-PhD training. We hope that our website gives you more insight into what makes our program unique, from its collaborative and interdisciplinary environment to its commitment to mentorship. If you have further questions that are not addressed on the website, please contact the MSTP office.
