Celebrating half a century of training physician-scientists

Our Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) is one of the longest running programs in the country. We were one of the first schools to obtain federal funding in 1967. Since then, our program has graduated more than 280 physician scientists, and many of our former trainees are now doing groundbreaking research at some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions.

We have invited some of our most accomplished alumni back to campus to talk about their research during the upcoming MSTP Reunion and Retreat.  The 50th Anniversary Alumni Research Symposium will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. June 23 in the Gordon Center for Integrative Science. The symposium is open to the entire University community, and I expect it will be a fascinating afternoon.
