Sponsored by the Minority Access To Research Careers (MARC) Branch of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (otherwise known as CasePREP) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine is designed to support recent diverse college graduates who are preparing for a career in biomedical research. The program offers a paid research experience with seasoned investigators in active and dynamic laboratories. These faculty research mentors provide strong training in the practice and culture of science.  Our interdisciplinary programs at CWRU School of Medicine include research experiences in Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genetics/Genomics, Molecular Biology and Microbiology, Neurosciences, Nutrition, Pathology, Pharmacology, and Physiology, among others. 

Your core experience as a PREP Scholar is an introduction to research as a scientific apprentice. You'll participate as a paid technician and complete other PREP activities for the remainder of your effort. You will be matched with a funded investigator in an area of your interest to experience research first-hand. Other developmental activities will be tailored to your unique needs, including laboratory and technology training, formal coursework, written and oral communication skills, and test-taking workshops.

  • You'll take specific coursework tailored to your needs, and tuition will be covered
  • You'll participate in departmental seminars and journal clubs
  • You'll meet weekly to present your work to each other and your mentors
  • You'll complete a course in the Responsible Conduct of Research
  • You'll maintain regular contact with the Program Coordinator

  • You'll apply to graduate programs with coaching on personal statements and interviewing
