START Biomedical Research Career Advisory Groups

Are you a first or second-year student interested in learning more about biomedical research as a career while getting to know other students and faculty? Read more to find out if joining a START (STEM Transition And ReTention) advisory group is right for you.

Vanderbilt is committed to the academic success of all students in the sciences through START. We invite any interested freshmen or sophomores, especially students from groups under-represented in the sciences, to join a START advisory group. Advisory groups will meet a few times each semester to learn about research opportunities at Vanderbilt, to discuss career paths in the biomedical sciences, and to foster research participation. We anticipate that START cohorts formed this fall will continue to meet throughout next year.
