Pathway for Junior Scientist Program

We are pleased to announce a new collaboration between Rutgers Newark and Rutgers New Jersey Medical School to establish a new program titled: the Pathway for Junior Scientist Program. The purpose of this program is to provide biomedical research opportunities to Rutgers-Newark undergraduates who are highly motivated to pursue a career in medicine or biomedical research (including data sciences). At the same time, it helps medical school faculties to identify and recruit promising students to work on their NIH-funded research. Practically, we aim to match students with a lab mentor who they can work with and get valuable experiences in research. This helps to achieve a win-win situation for the Newark research community. Faculty who have active well-funded laboratories are welcome to participate in this program. We will support the student by providing a stipend as well as $2,000 dollars for laboratory support in the selected laboratory. We hope to bring in the first students starting in early 2024.

If you are interested, please email Jennifer Yaney at with brief responses to each of the bullets listed below.
