Scholars in Translational and Academic Research (STARs)

PAST EVENTS

Objective

The Harvard Medical School Scholars in Translational and Academic Research (HMS STARs) was established by the Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership to support career advancement of postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented minority backgrounds while building a community of diverse scientists at Harvard Medical School. HMS STARs provides enrichment activities to enhance the training experience of postdoctoral fellows through mentorship, career development, and networking opportunities. HMS STARs encourages innovative science by providing postdoctoral fellows with opportunities to learn from diverse leaders from various disciplines in basic and biomedical sciences. Postdoctoral fellows also benefit from the sharing of unique perspectives, experiences and lessons learned from leaders with similar backgrounds and colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines.  HMS STARs provides an exceptional environment in which postdoctoral fellows can exchange scientific ideas in an informal setting.
