The CLIMB-HI Program (Collaborative Learning and Integrated Mentoring in the Biosciences) is a professional development program for PhD students, and is primarily funded through the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) grant from the National Institute for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). CLIMB Scholars will participate in the program until they graduate as the program provides guidance through each milestone towards a PhD, although the time commitment will diminish after their second year.
Students in the program come from the Ph.D. Program in Biomedical Sciences; the Departments of Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Oral Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Psychology; and the Graduate Division at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. The programming provided by our program is supplemental to what students will learn in their graduate coursework and they must meet the requirements of The CLIMB Program along with the requirements of their respective graduate program.
Some of the resources and requirements for CLIMB Scholars include:
All CLIMB activities are directed to helping students succeed, so we appreciate your cooperation and support. Please direct questions regarding the CLIMB Program to the CLIMB Program Coordinator, Graham Pumphrey at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Dr. Dubocovich at email@example.com.
