The VT (http://www.vt.edu) Postbac (VT PREP: http://prep.apsc.vt.edu) and IMSD (http://imsd.apsc.vt.edu undergrad and doctoral) programs are two of the leading R25s in the country. Between them, they have produced 43 PhDs who are pursuing research careers in academia, govt, and industry. Our success is a result of the "critical mass of minority students" built in the college town of Blacksburg. Our trainees come from every region including California, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and Florida. Our core philosophy is that "we have your back" so you can focus on becoming a scientist. Our reputation is the focus on you so you are assured of support through out your career even after VT. In the last two years, for example, 20 alumni have returned to VT share with the "IMSD/PREP Family" their experiences and to show our current trainees that "it can be done."
