Research opportunities in the UIC StARR program are comprised of four thematic areas based on training in specific techniques and approaches to be utilized and applied to mentored research projects offered across a range of potential areas of scientific focus. Broadly, these thematic areas are:
- Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Disease
- Implementation/ Dissemination Sciences and Health Equity
- Precision Medicine and Computational Approaches
- Applied Technology and Innovation
StARR faculty preceptors will supervise engagement in the research project, interact weekly with the trainee, review experiments and raw data, help the trainee to develop project-specific research skills including experimental design, critical thinking, data analysis and presentation skills as well as manuscript and grant writing. The program is comprised of 18 prospective, independently funded mentors with a wide range of scientific expertise directly relevant to the four major thematic areas
