What is On RAMP to STEM?
There are tremendous career opportunities for life science students who have strong quantitative skills. On RAMP to STEM scholarship recipients will learn about the interdisciplinary nature of current biological research which integrates biology, mathematics, and computer science. Through a required seminar students will explore biological applications of mathematical topics, build their quantitative skills, and learn about cutting edge biological research in spheres such as molecular modeling, systems physiology and bioinformatics which are all components of the emerging discipline of computational biology. Through the skills and the insights they will gain, On RAMP to STEM scholars will be better prepared for high demand careers in fields such as medicine, biotechnology, and environmental studies.
